By | April 9th, 2017|Grape Moments, Marketing & Media, Organic Viticulture, Vine2Wine|

In a famous and celebrated top wine region such as Bordeaux, almost every change in the weather, property sale or first insect arrival of the year is reported with zeal. Many leading wine sales companies and media have their “on the ground” newshound sharing news, rumours and perceptions about almost everything. But then there was

Beautiful ripe Cabernet Franc fruit ready to harvest in Bordeaux. Times change, tastes and trends change but quality always shines through.
