Situated on the 45th parallel, half-way between the North Pole and the Equator, the Bordeaux region enjoys a temperate oceanic climate.
The warm–water current of the Gulf Stream has a warming and moderating influence on the region’s temperature.
Also a pine forest shields the vineyards from the Atlantic winds.
Thus the Bordeaux climate offers sunny and warm Summers, beautiful Autumns, Winters mostly exempt from frost and relatively humid Springs; those are the exact conditions required for exceptional wine growing.
