I recently wrote about wine regions which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here comes the next wine district.

If it is a long time since you visited Bordeaux then you will see a completely different city now than a few decades ago. They have put a lot of resources into renovating the entire city and the promenade along the river, lined with beautiful houses and spectacular squares, is among the prettiest city walks there is. The top wines from Bordeaux have become extremely sought after by the international market, with a consequent rise in prices. This has of course also helped a lot to let the city regain the its shine.

But the most interesting things to visit in Bordeaux is actually all other chateaux, not the most “famous” ones (they have become more of museums with many tens of thousands of visitors per year). In Bordeaux, there is a seething spirit of innovation and new thinking, not only tradition, with young winemakers that make top wines at good prices. If you know where to look.

A wine tour to Bordeaux, the most classic of classic wine regions, is of course a recurring item on our wine tour program. The next wine tour to Bordeaux will be in September.

Read more on the wine regions that have been included on the Unesco World Heritage list; the next article will be published in a day or so.
