We’ve arrived at day 24, our last day of the wine advent calendar. It’s been a wonderful journey – one I’ve enjoyed and have learned from. So much so that I’ve altered my 2021 planned itinerary to include a few of the places visited during this virtual tour and have added some of these destinations to my must see list! What about you?
While we have visited Bordeaux fairly extensively during this journey (Days 4, 6, 10, 11 & 19), we find ourselves back in the city of wine one last time. And deservedly so. Bordeaux, very large in vineyard area (300,000 Acres) and wine producers (9000+), is a world class destination and a favorite of many travelers.
The city has received many accolades in recent years including being named Europe’s favorite tourist destination by European Best Destinations (2015), ranked number two of top places to visit by The New York Times (2016) in 2016, and being named Top City in the World to Visit by both Lonely Planet and the Los Angeles Times (2017).
