The Bordeaux Wine Council's UK campaign will feature several styles of Bordeaux, including everyday red wine

The Bordeaux Wine Council (CIVB) will roll out a promotional campaign to the UK on-premise as it looks to raise awareness of its wines. 

The CIVB said today that the campaign will feature across 500 sites within on-premise operator Mitchells & Butlers' portfolio. The aim is to improve visibility of Bordeaux wines and attract new customers, "particularly in more mainstream outlets and younger-customer venues," the CIVB said.

Activities will include food and wine pairings, offers and competitions. The campaign will feature around 17 Bordeaux wines including dry whites,
rosés, Crémant de Bordeaux, everyday reds as well as AOCs such as Saint-Émilion and Margaux.

Staff at participating outlets will receive online training. 

"This promotional campaign will demonstrate to the on-trade how the variety and value of Bordeaux wines can be a great option for restaurant and pub customers," said Fiona Juby, market consultant, CIVB. 

Activities begin this month and will continue into Spring 2017.
