Trip Report Bordeaux Wineries

Jump to last reply

We have recently took a several days trip in the Medoc region just north of Bordeaux.
We have been living since few years now in the south west of France (we are Canadians from BC!) and are still in a "discovery" mode of this country and believe me, there are many things to see in France.
The purpose of our visit was the discovery of some of the Bordeaux region renown wine "chateaux".
Médoc region is known for its famous wineries - Margaux, Pauillac, Saint Julien, Saint- Estephe - many of which were awarded in 1855 the "Grand Cru Classe" designation.This mark of quality is still respected nowadays and for good reason: some of the wines we tasted at these "chateaux" were heavenly.
What is more is that many of the main residences of the wineries are real "chateaux": impressive buildings - some of them even resembling the Dordogne castles - built centuries ago.
I have added all the information about the wine and the vienyards of Bordeaux (I could think important) in a post at:
http://southweststory.com/bordeaux-region-wineries
Hope it is of help to anybody interested in the wine tourism in Bordeaux region.

Cheers
