June 16, 2018, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Long one of the world’s most sought-after wines, Bordeaux has earned a reputation as being inaccessible to anyone who doesn’t have hundreds or even thousands of dollars to spend or years to wait for the bottles to mature in the cellar. You’ve probably been told many times that Bordeaux makes great value wines. Maybe you don’t believe it...so here's proof. Many of these wines come from high-quality producers working in top vineyards and renowned appellations. Some are simpler Bordeaux, but produced with just as much care. This is a small cross-section of what Bordeaux is really about. Whatever you do, try some of these wines. Bordeaux does mean value!
