Whether you know your riojas from your rosés or you can't tell the difference between champagne and chardonnay, wine capital of the world Bordeaux has plenty to offer visitors of all regions and appellations.

Pop the cork on this week's Escape and you will get a break to beautiful Bouliac at the Le Saint-James Hôtel. Stay during weekends—from Thursday to Saturday—and pay just £385 (up to a £646 value) for a two-night break for two in a double room, or £519 for three nights (up to a £942 value).

If you'd rather a midweek stay—between Sunday and Wednesday—you will get a guaranteed upgrade to one of the hotel's suites for two nights at £315 (up to a £833 value), or three nights at £425 (up to a £1,240 value). All offers include breakfast, a welcome package, and a glass of champagne each if dining in the hotel's restaurant.

Your grape expectations are sure to be exceeded when you enter your breathtaking double room and receive your welcome gift of a half-bottle of Sauternes, Bordeaux sweets, and seasonal fruits. Built by famed architect Jean Novel and furnished by a range of famous designers, each room boasts panoramic views of the River Garonne and its surrounding vineyards along with spacious en-suite bathrooms, satellite television, a Bang & Olufsen Hi-Fi, mini bar, king-size beds, coffee and tea making facilities, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi.

If you choose a midweek stay you will get a guaranteed upgrade to one of the hotel's luxury suites including the Jacuzzi Suite with its private terrace and hot tub, the huge loft-style Hauterive Suite, or the themed Harley Davidson Suite. All suites comes with Bulgari products and welcome chocolates.

Nothing goes so well with wine as gourmet cuisine and the hotel's two restaurants do not disappoint. Visit the Café de l'Espérance for a laid-back bistro-style eatery serving the likes of grilled steak alongside handcut chips. Or, pay a visit to award-winning chef Michel Portos at the Restaurant Le Saint-James for gourmet international cuisine—from blue lobster grilled with coral butter to roasted duck with turnip preserve and fried ginger—if you choose to dine in the restaurant you will even be treated to a glass of champagne each.

After re-cooper-ating from all that indulgence, it's time to get out and explore Bordeaux. Shopaholics will be delighted with the high-end boutiques on offer in the city while culture fans will love the local museums and art galleries—touring the region's famous vineyards is also a must for oenophiles.

Stop wine-ing about having nowhere to go and have a barrel of laughs with this week's Escape before it withers on the vine.
