San Diego, CA 92101
Discover the unsung stars of one of the best and oldest wine producing regions in the world. This tasting and Master Class will feature the Gold Medal winners of the Commanderie de Bordeaux United States’ annual blind-tasting competition as well as the top under-$40 wines in New York’s “Today’s Bordeaux” competition. There are close to 8,500 wine producing chateaux across the Bordeaux region, with the term chateaux implying anything from a 17th century castle to a warehouse or even a garage. Known as “petits chateaux”, these often smaller, lesser-known properties are producing consistently delicious wines due to modern winemaking techniques and better vineyard management. The Commanderie de Bordeaux’s annual blind-tasting competition seeks to bring some of these under-$40 gems to the attention of wine lovers worldwide. One need not break the bank to enjoy the Bordeaux blends that the rest of the world continues to try to emulate.
