Comedian has Joly good time in Bordeaux

26 October, 2011

The Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux (CIVB) has teamed up with comedian Dom Joly to produce a series of videos.

Joly spent three days in the region and the videos feature châteaux visits, wine school and an annual screaming contest.

Joly said: “I spent three fantastic days in Bordeaux in September, I think, probably the most surprising thing for me, was the variety of affordable Bordeaux wines; red, white and rosé available. Like most people, I had an image of Bordeaux as being red, expensive and really only for wine connoisseurs, but in reality, there are a multitude of wines available for easy drinking with some amazing wines under £10. I would recommend a weekend in Bordeaux to anyone who loves food and wine.”
