For its third year of existence, the Bordeaux Food Truck Festival offers a tour of various châteaux consisting of six free steps that will succeed each other starting from June leading into September venturing to five different appellations of Bordeaux wines. Combining two powerful trends, street food and wine tourism, in 2018 this tour attracted 10,000 visitors and received a Great Wine Capitals Best Of Wine Tourism award. This year's festival will (from today forward) stop at Château Castera, on the quays of Pauillac at the House of Tourism and Wines, at the Racecourse of Bordeaux, and even in a premier Grand Cru classé, the Château de Rayne Vigneau in Sauternes. Beyond the enhancement of food and wine pairings thanks to the great wines of the castles visited and the many food-trucks present (Brazilian, Asian, Italian, Breton, Basque and many others) the festival will be an opportunity to discover the current most beautiful offers wine tourism in the region: perched (in a tree) tasting, mixology workshop, an interactive tactile table, horse-drawn carriage or Jeep Willys tours, Wine Casino, etc. The participating Castles and the Blast Agency, organizer of the festival, have all already been winners of the Best Of Wine Tourism competition for excellence in the field of wine tourism. Wine neophytes and younger guests will also be pampered with a mobile Escape Game, street concerts, sports entertainment, children's games, all ambianced by the rising DJ, Samey Biova.
