Welcome to the latest installment of our new series highlighting the wineries and producers that craft the wines for Tasting Room! We're excited to show you some behind-the-scenes photos and give you a peek at how our exquisite French Bordeaux is made at Les Vignerons de Tutiac.

Les Vignerons de Tutiac is a cooperative of Bordeaux winegrowers who came together to combine traditional methods with the latest in winemaking technology. Their goal is to produce wines that express both the richness and diversity of Bordeaux's terroirs. Over generations, Les Vignerons de Tutiac have become real experts of the region's terroir, which extends over the Bordeaux, Blaye Côte de Bordeaux and Côtes des Bourg appellations. Each vine plot is characterized so that each wine can be crafted with accuracy and precision.

Created in 1974, Tutiac is the first producer of registered designation of origin (AOC) in France and a dynamic leader of wine production in Côtes de Bordeaux. The cooperative is currently putting its combined efforts together to develop an environmentally friendly viticulture and ensure a sustainable future for winegrowing. The large facility offers popular organized tours of the vineyards and cellars, along with a taste of the wines they offer.
