💡DID YOU KNOW: Bordeaux En-Primeur Week 2022 💡

Did you know that the Bordeaux En-Primeur tastings are happening this week?! Wine importers, journalists, hospitality professionals, and winemakers from all around the world 🌍have traveled to the vineyards of Bordeaux, France 🇫🇷this week to attend one of the greatest events in the industry - the Bordeaux 2022 En Primeur Week. ✨


We also made sure to attend the event, and are so happy to share with you a selection of the best moments we had in the region!  📷
The past few days have been quite action-packed - we enjoyed picturesque views, met lovely wine enthusiasts and professionals, and (of course!) tasted INCREDIBLE wine and food 
🍇🍷 from the châteaus we visited, including 🏰Château Gruaud Larose @gruaud_larose, 🏰 Château Rieussec @chateau.rieussec, 🏰Château Citran @chateau_citran, and 🏰 Château Giscours @chateaugiscours. 


➡️ About the event: 

The Bordeaux En-Primeur Week traditionally takes place every spring  and welcomes thousands of people who taste wines that have been harvested the previous autumn. 🍂Over the week, critics give their score  on each wine, which determines the prices 🏷set by each château. Afterwards, at the beginning of the summer, these prices are released and buyers can pre-book particular wines while they are still in the barrels.🛢Finally, the wines are shipped to the buyers between 18 months and 3 years ⏱ after bottling.   


Getting familiar with the event (either by attending it, or by reading more about the outcomes of it every year) is a great way to sparkle your enthusiasm 🌟 and deepen your understanding of the wine industry. This is why we highly recommend you doing so!
