    Chateau Bauduc

    Château Bauduc is a prestigious 200-acre estate near Bordeaux & St Emilion.

    Their website says, “Welcome to our website. We make affordable Bordeaux wines on our own vineyard and sell direct to people at home in the UK and to leading restaurants. Delivery takes just a few days from our warehouse near London.

    Since the first vintage in 2000 the Quinneys have made Bauduc into a very smart operation, selling direct to consumers through mail order and the internet, and gaining regular listings with such star chefs as Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein. The wine deserves it. Red, pink and white, they are utterly drinkable, each possessing a classic, mouthwatering Bordeaux texture and easy going fruit.  chateau bauduc award winning bordeaux wine

    Free Wine tasting in Bordeaux

    Posted on 9th March 2014

    bienvenue au salonSo, what’s the last thing you probably think of doing at 9am on a Sunday morning…?  That’s right – going to a wine exhibition in Bordeaux !  Still, the “Salon aux Vignerons Indépendants” (Independent Wine Makers Exhibition”) is only once a year, and is a fabulous free event that isn’t to be missed.

    Fortunately, the French don’t seem to have quite got the hang ofwine tasting ripping off consumers, at every turn, in the same way as their Anglo-Saxon neighbours.  The parking is free and plentiful adjacent to the exhibition hall.  Then, there is the entry itself….which is free.  Of course you need a wine glass for tasting.  Yes, you’ve guessed it – that’s free, too.  In fact all the tastings are as well.  Furthermore, large chariots (pronounced shar -ee-oh) are available for free hire to enable you to easily transport your purchases to your car. read more
