One of the world's most famous wine producing regions lie around the city of Bordeaux in France, which has been an important trading port supplying world with fine wines for centuries. Today, around 60 different appelations and 7,500 chateaux spread all over the countryside make this area a true gem for wine enthusiasts. Bordeaux wines owe their superior quality to the special climate of the territory located between the Atlantic Ocean and two rivers, the Dordogne and the Garonne, which flow into the Gironde Estuary. The wine estates of the region are roughly divided into two according to their location. The ones on the left bank of the Gironde take Cabernet Sauvignon as their main noble grape variety and the ones on the right bank use Merlot as the primary grape in their blends. The region is simply a feast for the eyes: endless well-kept vineyards, amazing wine estates that grew around ages-old chateaus with various architectural styles and highly gastronomic restaurants make any visit to the region an unforgettable experience. Most of the established wine estates accept visitors with appointment though, so you would need to plan way before! Joining wine tasting courses is also a good start to learn about the complex wine tradition of the region.
