Guided tour of Bordeaux

There are just a few meccas of wine, and Bordeaux is indisputably one of them. Not only does the region produce some of the world’s benchmark wines -- enough reason in my book to go for a visit -- but the newly renovated city of Bordeaux is a simply lovely place to explore, making a trip there perfect for wine geek and significant other of wine geek alike!

Once in Bordeaux, the list of properties worth visiting can be daunting, and access limited. If you really want to have the Best Wine Region Visit Ever, contact Dewey Markham. Author of several books, chief among them the exceptionally interesting 1855: A History of the Bordeaux Classification, Dewey is almost as well known in Bordeaux as Bordeaux is to him. Seriously, I have never had the pleasure of meeting a more knowledgeable wine guide than Dewey. I was fortunate to spend some four days with him this year visiting properties in Bordeaux and he not only has an encyclopedic knowledge about everything Bordeaux, but he also is a fun person to chat with. Dewey Markham: Wine guide extraordinaire!

    Really?? Only one idea was truly affordable for average people. I was so looking forward to this and feel let down... Maybe the next installment?

    Yes the next instalment will be about more comfortably priced gifts. these mostly big ticket item,s all take some extra lead time so I wanted to get them in now but next week we'll follow up with part II.

    Thanks!
