Experience the wines of Bordeaux and Germany

You might think these two regions are different but look more closely and you’ll discover fascinating parallels. They share history, amazing landscapes, culture, culinary passions, and a modern outlook on the wine traditions of old. There is more to these renowned regions than meets the eye: Stunning red wines from Germany. Delicious white wines from Bordeaux. Explore surprising styles, discover unparalleled wine-sipping destinations and dive into our culinary culture. Challenge your perceptions (and your palettes).

Take a virtual trip to these regions with us. Participants will each receive a suitcase for their trip, filled with six bottles of wine. Included with your boarding pass will be one year’s access to SommGeo, so you can travel anywhere you like, all year long.
