Vintages is ... Bordeaux Futures

Wines from Bordeaux, the world’s most famous wine region, are always in demand. Because of this, many wines are bought as “futures” – that is, while they’re still ageing in the barrel! Here’s how it works: Vintages buyers and wine critics from around the globe travel to Bordeaux in the spring to taste the wines from the previous fall’s harvest; guided by the impressions of our buyers and the critics, customers decide which wines to buy – there are prices to fit most budgets. Two years later, these wines are bottled and delivered to customers all over the world. Buying Futures is a great way to get top wines early, and at potentially lower prices, and is an annual tradition for many collectors and budding enthusiasts.
