Bordeaux, a port city in southwestern France has 65 wine appellations with more than 6,500 winemakers who produce wine in Bordeaux – making it the largest appellation designated wine-growing region in France. While there are a few vineyards within the city limits most are outside the city centre, dotting the beautiful and varied landscape of what’s called the Gironde department.

Six main varieties, three red – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and three white – Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle are used for winemaking in Bordeaux. In-depth knowledge of the soils has made it possible to alter the choice of varieties to make the most of the aromatic dimension of the wines.  Other varieties are permitted such as Carménére, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Colombard, Sauvignon Gris and Ugni Blanc, though these are often present in lesser quantities, but can help bring out a wine’s specific personality during assemblage or blending.

For several years now, the Bordeaux wine-growing region has been undergoing a major ecological transition. 65% of the wine-growing region is certified as taking an environmental approach.
