Bordeaux is the largest vineyard for appellation wines in the whole of France. Situated in the South West near the Atlantic, it is crossed by the rivers Garonne and Dordogne and enjoys a temperate maritime climate. The richness, the quality and the diversity of its wines derive from the particular character of the terroirs, the experience of the winegrowers and the art of blending. Wines of the Bordeaux Sec appellation combine the fruit of the Sauvignon with the roundness of Sémillon in a well-balanced blend. A regional appellation covering the entire vineyard zone of the Gironde department.

The Girondins fountain, dear to the hearts of all in Bordeaux, is found on the Place des Quinconces. It celebrates the glory of the Girondins and was created by sculptor Dumilâtre. Consisting of 52 tonnes of bronze, the sculpture was erected between 1894 and 1902, and removed during the Second World War by the French resistance to avoid having it melted down to make cannons. It was finally reinstalled in 1982 under the aegis of the Bordeaux Town Hall. Chevaux des Girondins is available in Bordeaux red, Bordeaux rosé, Bordeaux dry white and Bordeaux moelleux (sweet white).
