Bordeaux has been producing wine since the 8th century. We can thank the Romans for introducing wine to Bordeaux where it was produced for local drinking. The wine was so good that it has been continued, almost non-stop, since that period; however, the Bordeaux wines have had challenges over the years.
Grape varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Red wines in Bordeaux are blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and/or Cabernet Franc and white wines are Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
