Land. Climate. Know-how. These three elements create the range of legendary terroir that propelled Bordeaux into the spotlight as one of the world’s top wine regions. Climate, topography, waterways and the Atlantic Ocean have a powerful influence on Bordeaux vineyards, and ultimately the wine in your glass. Some of the top Châteaux in the region open their doors and cellars to show how winemakers adapt to these conditions and the shifting elements.
