INtRODUCING BRIGITTE BORDEAUX
Owned and operated by a young couple with a passion for wine and for life, for Kat and Matt Brigitte Bordeaux is about more than just wine. Along with a sense of love for food and wine, there’s an emphasis on bringing their spirited and independent ethos to Sherwood and the local neighbourhood.
As local residents and wine enthusiasts, we wanted to open a great place in Sherwood for local people to buy, drink and learn about quality-driven wine. Come along and grab a bottle from the shop, join us for a glass or two in the bar, or learn more about wine at one of our regular tasting events.
