Welcome to Bordeaux
Based in South-West France, Bordeaux is one of the most prestigious wine-producing areas on earth. Wine Searcher notes that Bordeaux is known for its “dry, medium bodied” “legendary reds,” made from grapes such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It is also a popular holiday destination for wine enthusiasts, with a unique new wine museum recently opening in the region.
Bordeaux’s legendary reds are produced in a number of towns across the region, including Saint Emilion.

The nearby area houses some of Bordeaux’s most iconic wineries, such as Chateau Beausejour.
