DESTINATION

AUGUST 19th - 25th
BORDEAUX, FRANCE

Bordeaux has an established reputation as the world's capital for wine. Unsurprisingly so, since Bordeaux wine has been in production since the 8th century. This would be F&FW's 9th trip to Bordeaux. Why do we keep returning to Bordeaux, you ask? Well, the simple answer is that we love it there, and despite the dozens of châteaux that we've visited throughout these years, there are still dozens more waiting to be uncovered.

Stay tuned for updates to the itinerary!
