The French Winophiles are touring the Bordeaux regions of Graves and Entre-Duex-Mers. Learn about Graves, according to Wines of Bordeaux as:
“Dotted with Grands Crus classés and discreet vineyards, these terroirs enjoy high-quality soils and microclimates conducive to winegrowing.”
And Entre-Deux-Mers, which is nested between two bodies of water. Wines of Bordeaux says:
The Dordogne and The Garonne: two rivers influenced by ocean tides that behave like inland seas!
Illustrating the best in food, wine and travel from these spots are the following writers and bloggers:
