Comedian has Joly time in Bordeaux

27 October, 2011

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

Joly spent three days in the region and the videos feature chateau 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.”

The videos can be found on You Tube.
