Bordeaux is situated in an almost-perfect viticultural region on the west cost of France and benefits from the ultimate marketing tool – the Château-based classification system that was established almost 150 years ago.
Bordeaux is home to the world’s greatest wines, thanks to the combination of unique landscape and 1000 years of winemaking experience. Bordeaux has over 118,000 hectares of vines, more than in the whole of Australia. The diverse soil types, from clay to gravel and limestone, are ideally suited to growing the region’s seven different grape varieties, which include the world-renowned Cabernet family, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc which were all originally born in Bordeaux.
Through local skill, perfected over centuries and the innovation of today’s growers, the blending of these varieties create a range of wines unparalleled in their quality and diversity. There is something for all palates.
Whether you are getting together with friends, enjoying the sun on a summer’s day, or simply unwinding in the bath at the end of a hard day, Bordeaux can provide the perfect blend.
