Welsh wine on sale in Bordeaux

While Wales' football team is hoping 2016 will be a vintage year, the nation's wine is also vying for recognition in Bordeaux.

Monmouth's Ancre Hill Estates is supplying its sparkling wine to wholesaler Passion Vins, in Pessac. And it is also on show at Bordeaux's new wine attraction, La Cite Du Vin.

There are about 17 vineyards in Wales and the nation produces around 100,000 bottles of wine annually.

Regis Deltil, of Passion Vins and La Cite, said: "In France nobody knows Wales produces wine and wine of such quality."
