    Though I have been to several wineries and taken multiple wine tours this was by far the most informative ever. There is a very BIG difference between this wine and other white wines. It was very interesting to learn the unique way they only choose the right grapes and why the yield is so small to harvest only the best. Since I am not normally a white wine type of guy I was shocked how great this is. If you ever go to Bordeaux, go the extra mile and go to the Sauternes area in France. This winery is a "Got to go"!!!
