Bordeaux

The 2019 international ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ awards were announced during a gala dinner at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens on November 8. The ceremony marked the end of the 2018 Annual General Meeting of the Great Wine Capitals in Adelaide, South Australia. The international award winners were chosen from among the ‘Best Of’ winners from each Great Wine Capital. This year, there were 384 entrants and 62 local award winners worldwide. Château Smith Haut Lafitte won the International Best Of Wine Tourism awards for Bordeaux!

 

On the occasion of Vinexpo 2015, the Great Wine Capitals Global Network and the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be hosting a conference with the objective to give an overview of the various wine tourism activities and performances in the Networks member regions.

Château de Rouillac

Château de Rouillac, which formerly belonged to the famous Baron Haussmann, is an ideal venue for corporate seminars. This estate full of history features the sorts of top-level modern services expected by professionals. Participants have an outstanding view of the 17th century manor house and its stables with draught horses and race horses that train every day.

Château de La Dauphine in Fronsac is no stranger to this blog. They were first featured when they won their first Best of Wine Tourism Gold Award in 2014, for Architecture & Landscapes. Hardly surprising, as this beautiful 18th century chateau and its park are nestled in the foothills of the vineyard slopes of Fronsac, overlooking the banks of the Dordogne.

Chateau Feely is excited to announce a new range of virtual wine tasting parties, live tasting and pairing classes, and online courses. 

Château Malromé took the Bordeaux Gold Best of prize in the Art and Culture category for 2020. It was unsurprising really, as Château Malromé was the family home of the iconic French painter, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.https://www.entredeuxmers.com/

Despite the French lockdown during this crisis, the Bordeaux vineyards remained busy; nature hasn't stopped just because we have. The vines have been pruned and they are shooting up into the spring sunshine. Work continues in the cellar too. Luckily properties have the luxury of the space to carry out all these activities while still respecting social distancing.

Come and meet the young generation of wine makers and managers who are ringing the changes in Bordeaux and are keen to meet their clients face to face to share their passion, building experiences some of which are also aimed at a younger generation.

Given its size and iconic status as a wine region it's not surprising that  Bordeaux offers almost as much diversity in wine education as it does styles of wine.
