Wine buying in Rioja and Bordeaux ideas please

Jump to last reply

This year's September wine shopping trip will be based in Rioja and Bordeaux. We are meeting up with a bunch of friends for a few days B&B in the Haut Medoc and we can plan to catch a ferry from/to Portsmouth to the North of France and the North of Spain.

Mrs Bilbo speaks Spanish which is one of the languages spoken in Rioja and we've been before but not for some 15 years. We both speak French. We've spent a fair bit of time in Bordeaux over the years and can find our way around.

So looking for some insights about wine, visits, staying, restaurants in Rioja and on the road from Rioja up to Bordeaux. So ideas please?
