I have travelled the length and breadth of Bordeaux
for over 30 years, so you can be sure that the wines
you are about to discover have been carefully
chosen. I know all the producers personally and
can recommended them for several reasons, but most
of all because they love their job and make their wines
with the care and attention worthy of fine Bordeaux.
Furthermore, most of them are glad to welcome visitors
(especially if you mention this guide).
Bordeaux offers an absolutely tremendous range of
wines, with something for everyone. All the bottles
included in this guide are blended wines, which is to
say they are made with several different grape varieties:
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit
Verdot for the red wines, and Sémillon, Sauvignon
Blanc, and Muscadelle for the whites. The pictograms
(flags underneath the photos of winegrowers) represent
the languages they speak. I sincerely wish you a very enjoyable trip to the 21st century Bordeaux wine country.
