Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux, one of the most famous wine regions in the world, is acclaimed for its terroir, which plays a vital role in wine production. Bordeaux is defined by three rivers, The Dordogne and Gironde rivers which converge to form the Garonne river before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean. These rivers form natural boundaries that create the Left Bank, Right Bank, Graves and Entre-Deux-Mers areas. Each area is home to many sub-regions, each with their own unique terroir and Appellation d'origine contrôlé laws that control vineyard practices and winemaking methods.
