Our French Roots
The Commanderie de Bordeaux aux États-Unis d'Amérique was organized in 1957 by a small group of lovers of Bordeaux wines. It has grown to include 34 chapters and some 1200 members. We are affiliated with the Bordeaux-based Grand Conseil du Vin de Bordeaux (GCVB)
The Triangle North Carolina chapter was established in 1996 with 12 members. The chapter has grown steadily ever since, and now has about 40 members.
Our Events and Cellar
Our chapter cellar contains over 1000 bottles of Bordeaux, with vintages dating back over 20 years.
We have events throughout the year, including specially prepared dinners at outstanding restaurants with menus paired to the wines we are serving, wine tastings to compare wines from different appellations or different vintages, educational events about Bordeaux wines, and informal social gatherings at members' homes.
