Bordeaux – 2016

There are more than 8 000 chateaux, producing 6 millions hectolitres. The Bordeaux region is one of the biggest producing regions in the world. It produces one third of the AOC wines in France. Bordeaux lies near the coast of the Atlantic ocean, in the south west of France and has been producing wines for over 2 000 years. Before the Romans arrived, in 56 BC, wine producing is attested. The Roman poet Ausonius mentioned it. At the beginning of the second millennium, the region fell under British law. Hundreds of boats were loading barrels of Claret for England. The Claret was a red, light wine that the English loved. Since then, the word Claret was used, and still is sometimes, meaning red Bordeaux.
