Le Grand Theatre in Bordeaux

Bordeaux, France’s most beautiful city | Wine Tour

Bordeaux is one of France’s most beautiful cities. From being a town with narrow, winding alleys, Bordeaux was rebuilt in the 1700s with large, airy avenues.

Large, impressive investments in Bordeaux, a must see

In Bordeaux, the wine chateaux invest. They invest in new stylish wine cellars, new oak barrels, new fermentation tanks, new optical sorting machines. And probably in other things as well. It is not just the well-known chateaux with thick wallets that invest. Though it is only these chateaux that can afford to hire designers and […]

Bottles aging in the cellar at Clos Fourtet, Saint Emilion, Bordeaux

”Bordeaux, yes, but which vintage?” Does it matter?

For Bordeaux people talk vintages. Vintages are a subject of discussion also in other regions, but not as much as in Bordeaux. The reason is perhaps that this is where you can find investment-grade wines. Wines that you don’t buy to drink but buy to sell, hopefully at a profit. It is a very small […]

Bordeaux, both classic and modern

Beautiful châteaux, great wines = Wine tour to Bordeaux

You never forget the chateaux of Bordeaux. They are fabulous, sometimes like something out of a fairy tale. It is incredible that a wine region can have such a collection of chateaux. You can go to Bordeaux just to look at these chateaux. But that would be a shame. The wines are also fabulous, albeit […]

What can you find behind the grand chateaux façades in Bordeaux?

Bordeaux is the world’s biggest quality wine region. 120,000 hectares of vineyards, 5 million hectolitres of wine, 7000 wine producers. Yet most people think almost only on the fewer than 100 world-famous chateaux when they hear Bordeaux mentioned. If you are really interested in wine then perhaps it is not a price list (yes, in […]

The classic and ultimate wine tour: Bordeaux

Bordeaux is a wine region of many contrasts. You have the hugely famous wine producers with magnificent almost Versailles-like chateaux, with wines that you can rarely afford. But it is also a wine region with very rural parts, with small family wineries (still called chateau, of course). In fact, it is a wine region where […]

Bordeaux for the wine lover – wine tour destination

In some ways Bordeaux and Champagne are very similar. The wines are of course totally different, but both share similar international fame and both have wine producers that many wine-lovers can only dream of tasting.
