Bordeaux is the world's wine capital with more than 9,000 vineyards. Mention Médoc or Graves or other wines of South West France and oenophiles swoon. The rest of us sigh with our first sip. Châteaux like Margaux, Lafite-Rothschild start the dream.
Bordeaux's wine regions include Haut–Medoc, Saint-Emilion, Entre-Deux-Mers, Blaye, Bourg, Sauterne, and more. Visit the 'Caves', enjoy wine tasting and touring, stop at small restaurants or relax at spa hotels. Adventure east - discover the malbec wines of Cahor or Bergerac’s distinctive reds. Spirits? Try Cognac and Armagnac.
