Wine, wine…WINE!

Wine, wine…WINE! What else? Nobody needs instructions on what to try first & foremost in Bordeaux. Even those who despise wine (who? .. oh come on), know that Bordeaux & its region is famous worldwide for its unmatched quality wines. Produced even before Roman times Bordeaux wine includes today 10.000 wine-producing Châteaux (plural for Château) & 13.000 grape growers who produce more than 960 million bottles a year.

Both red & white, very expensive & everyday wine are made in Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit verdot, Malbec & Carménère for red & Sauvignon blanc, Sémillon, Muscadelle & Sauternes for the whites…Château Pétrus in Pomerol, Château Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, Château Latour in Pauillac, Château Cheval Blanc in Saint-Émilion, all in the wider area of Bordeaux are considered the best in the world…if you’re not a wine lover or connoisseur maybe this is your best shot at being one in the future.
