Why Bordeaux Primeurs Are Still Worth Your Interest


One of the jobs I have is to sell wine to private punters, and Bordeaux makes up a large proportion of that.  It’s a region I love, from the food, the wine, and producers…everything really, so it’s not really a toughy to be an enthusiastic salesman.  But every year, around April/May the primeurs campaign has me struggling.  But a recent article in Decanter made me realise I was missing some obvious tricks…


Sit Back And Enjoy The Ride – High Speed Train To Bordeaux In 2020


Ever since you could book a train to Bordeaux in one go on the Eurostar website, the idea of flying out there is a thing of the past for me.  I’m not a big fan of flying, or airports, or travelling back and forth to airports.  I’m also a staunch opponent of the amount of air travel we do in this world and what an awful impact it has on air pollution.  We’ve got to stop this shit soon, it’s really really not good.

Anyway, trains are the way forward as far as I’m concerned, and a couple of hours to Paris, an hour’s stop over, and another couple of hours down to Bordeaux is a great way to do it.  But rumour has it, it’s about to get even better…
