Wine Tasting: Barton & Guestier Réserve Grenache Noir

Award Winning Red

The company’s founder, Thomas Barton left his native Ireland in the beginning of the 18th century and emigrated to Bordeaux when he was just 30 years old. As a true adventurer he founded his wine-shipping company in 1725. Very quickly, his efforts brought an unbelievable level of prosperity and by 1747, Thomas Barton was considered Bordeaux’s number one shipper and his loyal clients nicknamed him “French Tom”. He was the first shipper to have his own wine estates. In 1802 Hugh Barton, his grandson and successor, teamed up with Daniel Guestier, a French trader, to create Barton & Guestier which is today the oldest wine merchant established in Bordeaux.

How is Red Wine made?

Red wine is made by fermenting the juice of dark-skinned grapes.
