In this weeks episode, Shelley and Phil talk about the existing Bordeaux grape varietals and how the evolving climate change has prompted the French to officially add new Bordeaux grape varietals. And during this conversation they taste through a sensational White Bordeaux, Red Bordeaux and introduce the Vinloq slow decanting and wine preservation system. Let us be the first to say, #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing
