Organized by Planet Bordeaux, Wines from the Bordeaux & Bordeaux Supérieur appellations, the “My Bordeaux Wine Is…” video festival is the place where wineproducers are opening an entertaining and personal dialogue with the public. They are sharing their wines, bien sûr, but also their art de vivre. The festival gives you the opportunity to discover them in a different way.
“70% of internet users watch videos online,” explained Bernard FARGES, president of Planet Bordeaux, “We wanted to both encourage winemakers to express themselves through videos, and create a plateform. This way, the public and professionnals can view them and actively participate by casting their votes for their favorite videos.”
