Winter in Bordeaux

Our interim CEO Liz Cerroti and Head of Digital Nicky Glennon enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of Bordeaux with buyer Tim Sykes on three misty days in December and January.

They got a first taste of the 2017 vintage, found out what it takes to blend our Society's Claret & Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc and learned about Bordeaux food, frost and fascinating wine machinery on visits to some of our best-known Bordeaux producers.
