My love for the Bordeaux wine region started some years ago. Visiting Chateau Haut-Bailly, Giscours and Kirwan, I was struck by the history and atmosphere. Add to this the unsurpassed quality and aging potential of the wines, the variety in wines between the different appellations and the international succes. I was sold!
Dreaming to visit all high-quality Bordeaux Chateaux en Vineyards, I couldn't find a proper complete overview and map. That's when I descided to create one myselves.
Hopefully it will inspirate other Bordeaux lovers or winelovers in general. I'm always open for comments and feedback.
Cheers, or as the French say "a la votre". Steven
