Some of the world’s most famous wines are made in Bordeaux, produced in historic château cellars. In recent years, the district has unfairly gained a reputation for producing unattainable luxury wines. But that is not a fair description. Or it is at least not the whole truth. Most wines come from family-owned wineries that make excellent wines in the “normal” price ranges. Bordeaux is also world’ famous for its châteaux, however, all wineries, no matter its size can call itself a château here.

Bordeaux is something of a world benchmark for quality wine. Winemakers from around the world like to compare their wines with those from Bordeaux. Many wine lovers think of the wines from here as the most classic of classic of all wines, a wine they always return to.

Bordeaux, wines, regions, producers gives you the keys to discover or rediscover the wonderful wines of this great and beautiful district. The book takes you through all the sub-district, explains the terroir, talks about the grape varieties and the most exciting wine producers.

Wine goes hand in hand with food, not least in France. In Bordeaux, the classic French haut-cuisine gastronomy is mixed with authentic more rustic delicacies from the South-West. You will get a taste of all this in the book too.

The book is part of the series Guide to the World of Wine.

The book, and the whole series, has been named Best Book of the Year, category Travel Guides, by The Gastronomy Academy, Best Gastronomic Literature Awards.
