Visiting Bordeaux, France, was a life-changing experience for us. Armed with a lifelong love for wine and an elementary understanding of Bordeaux, we dove headfirst into a world of rich history and the best wine the world is capable of producing. It was literally love at first sip. We immediately discovered that Bordeaux held something magical and special, and that the hype was justified. But we were also left with a lingering thought; why did this revelation not happen earlier? It became apparent that while Americans love wine as much as anyone, their exposure to Bordeaux wine is limited. There are a number of misconceptions and misunderstandings when it comes to Bordeaux wine.
Our mission then became increasingly clear: We wanted to share our love and experiences with these grand vins, while showing others how accessible these wines are and why they too will ultimately arrive at the same epiphany. We hope you enjoy our blog, and while everything contained within is our own opinions, we sincerely hope you find them valuable and educational. La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin!
