New York Restaurants Showcase ‘Eco-Heroes’ of Bordeaux in November with Rare 3-Liter Bottles
Over 60 restaurants will pour big bottle formats that spotlight fourteen inspiring wineries and Bordeaux’s significant environmental commitment
The Bordeaux wine region is joining forces with New York restaurants to celebrate the “Eco-Heroes” of Bordeaux with a special big bottle promotion this November.
New York restaurants will feature fourteen Bordeaux wineries
New York restaurants will feature fourteen Bordeaux wineries that exemplify the region’s significant commitment to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. Making this particularly memorable for New York wine lovers, the featured wines will be offered in 3-Liter bottles, a rare, double-magnum size.
Ranging from wine bars to Michelin-starred restaurants, more than 60 accounts in New York have signed up to support the program this fall.
Launching November 1, participating accounts will pour a selection of wines from 3-Liter bottles, and many are opting to host additional tasting experiences and promotions.
“Sustainability in winemaking
is really at the forefront for winegrowers in Bordeaux,”
said Allan Sichel, President of the Bordeaux Wine Council.
“We are thrilled to work together with our wineries, importers and New York hospitality partners to honor the ‘Eco-Heroes’ of Bordeaux this season and hope to inspire all who taste the wines with their collective achievements.”
The Bordeaux region is committed to collective and individual environmental practices that encourage long-term vine health and mitigate the impact of climate change. Recent efforts have reached impressive sustainable benchmarks: 75% of the Bordeaux vineyard is certified by an environmental approach; 23% of the vineyard is organic or in conversion; and collectively, the region has reduced carbon emissions by 24% since 2012. Many winegrowers are also actively developing biodiversity initiatives to encourage healthy bat, bee and tree populations to thrive in synergy with vineyard plantings.
