Arrival in Bordeaux, France

After months of planning I finally arrived in Bordeaux to start the next chapter of my journey into the world of wine. I arrived on a cloudy afternoon via Brussels, Belgium with great excitement. Once the rental car was organised and with car keys in hand, I was on my way up into the famous Medoc region of Bordeaux. Here I will stay at least until the end of harvest later this year. Below are some photos of week 1.
