Trying to recreate a memory in Bordeaux

We will be in Bordeaux for two days in early August. I am trying to retrace our steps from several years ago to a wonderful place in the center of the city that was like a wine school where we had some wonderful tastings of wine. We then went to a charming shop that sold pate that was nearby. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Or... do you have suggestions for wine tasting and pate shops in Bordeaux?

There is an Ecole du Vin in Bordeaux: https://www.bordeaux.com/wschool/fr/ecoleduvin

The p t is more problematic. You can't swing a cat in this part of France without encountering p t.

Why oh why can't this site support an a with a circonflex?

Because they are a bit stupid and ethnocentric, StCirq.

Seems to be a definite problem with circumflex and the letter a.

JanisJ - What system are you using? All your accented letters look good.

mac/ios -

hold down any letter that has circonflexe/symbols and you get all the options.

e ē ė ę

u ū

i ī į

y

o œ ō

etc . . .

I am using the same system, janis, and use diacriticals all the time, including , , ...but the has never worked. OH, but now it does - someone must have fixed it.

janisj, glad it works for you but StCirq knows her way around a keyboard and French. Some sort of glitch, StC. Glad it came back.

Hope you find those special places, Airedaleamiga!

What has never worked? Not sure what you refer to.

The never worked for me until yesterday. All other letters with the circumflex worked fine. Not that you'd want to, but you could go back and see plenty of posts of mine where I tried to write, e.g., chteau or pt, and it came out ch ateau or p t.

Anyway, doesn't matter now. I reported it to the moderators a couple of weeks ago and I think they must have fixed it. Why it always worked for janisj, I have no idea.
