Summary: 

Bordeaux has been one of the most important ports in all of Europe since Roman times, and it is no surprise that the wines of the area have inspired strategic political alliances, wars, wealth, and are among the old world’s most internationally influenced and sought after. Bordeaux is iconically French, but would not resemble itself without the impact of the English and the Dutch.

Join wine historian Tanya Morning Star Darling to uncover the essence of the greatest wine of trade, and explore the classifications and Chateaux that shaped the Bordeaux region as we know it today.
