Schiller-Wine Selected as Finalist for the 2016 Millesima Blog Awards - Please vote for me!

Schiller-Wine was selected as a finalist for the 2016 Millesima Blog Awards. I am very happy.

The Millesima jury selected the following posting: Tour and Tasting at Château de Fargues, Appellation Sauternes, with Prince Eudes d’Orléans – Bordeaux Tour by ombiasy WineTours (2015), France

The posting reports about a visit of Château de Fargues, one of the leading producers of noble-sweet wines in Sauternes. Our host was Prince Eudes d’Orléans, 3rd in line of the throne, should a monarchy be reinstituted in France, who is the Managing Director at Château de Fargues.

The posting is part of a series covering a Bordeaux tour by ombiasy WineTours that took place from September 15 to 24, 2015. The group comprised 8 wine lovers from the United States, including Annette and Christian Schiller, who led the group.

We will go back to Bordeaux in September 2016. If you want to join us, please go to the ombiasyPR website or contact either Annette Schiller ( or me (
