Côtes de Bourg Wine Region Guide

Discover Bourg's Hidden Gems: Where Timeless Tradition Meets Unpretentious Excellence


Last updated: June 10, 2024


On the right bank of the Gironde lie the vineyards of Bourg. You may not be familiar with or have shown interest in the zone, and we don’t blame you. Lost in the hype that engulfs the Medoc, Pomerol, and Saint-Emilion, Côtes de Bourg does not produce labels for millionaires.

Instead, it quietly and confidently gets on with the business of making appetizing, balanced, and fresh red (and white) wines that belong at the dinner table. Granted, the understated wines of Bourg are unlikely to electrify the auction house circuit in 2024. But they are worth discovering and appreciating despite their lack of renown.
