Can You Get To Bordeaux Wineries By Public Transportation?

Yes, there are several excellent wineries around Bordeaux city that are easy to visit using Bordeaux public transit system.

The wine region of Bordeaux is comprised of sixty-five AOCs (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée). These areas differentiate smaller wine-growing areas within the larger Bordeaux wine region.  

Most wineries on the right and the left bank of the Gironde are approximately 30 minutes to 1.5 hours away by car.

The appellations Pessac-Léognan and Haut-Medoc are the closest to the city of Bordeaux. These areas are home to high-quality wineries that are well worth a visit. 

How To Use Public Transportation In Bordeaux?

Bordeaux’s public transportation runs through the company Transports Bordeaux Métropole (TBM). This covers buses and trams as well as BAT3 boats which you can use to get to Bordeaux wine museum, La Cite Du Vin. There are four tram lines, A, B, C, and D that cover the majority of Bordeaux city. All trams converge at the tram stop Quinconces, located right in the heart of the city center and next to the Bordeaux Tourism Office. 

You can buy tickets for public transport at any metro stop in Bordeaux, in a TBM office, on the bus (although not preferred), or through their TBM app.   You may want to consider a Bordeaux City Pass which includes unlimited access to public transportation.

Tickets are affordable at €1.80 for a one-way trip. If you have to transfer during your trip, for example, from a tram to a bus, you can rescan your ticket an unlimited amount of times for up to one hour. TBM also offers the option to buy 2 trips, 10 trips, a 24-hour pass, and a 7-day pass.
