2015 Primeurs : from 4 to 7 April 2016
Once again this year Bordeaux City Bond will be present during the “Primeurs” event to be held from 4 to 7 April 2016. During the entire week, the team from Bordeaux City Bond will be available on its Blanquefort site, to meet all those clients who wish to take advantage of their visit to the region to see their stocks. It is also an opportunity for any potential clients to visit the warehouse, the ideal occasion for them to be reassured that they will be choosing a storage solution that is both ultra-secure and totally confidential.
On 7 March last, we were delighted to welcome Julian Poh, Director of the Singapore-based company BORDEAUX LIQUID GOLD, together with a number of his clients, who had come to visit some of the region’s most prestigious châteaux. His clients were not only able to enjoy the privilege of seeing their cases of wine, but were also the first to visit our new, freshly completed, tasting room. Later in the day, dinner in one of the private rooms at the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce offered the perfect moment to discuss current and future perspectives.
“Our ambassador” as we like to call him, Julian Poh, was kind enough to give us his opinion of our warehouse and our services during a short interview.
