The Oddbins Take

For centuries, locals in a small corner of Pessac Leognan have followed a singular tradition to appoint apprentice winemakers. While coveted, the apprenticeship comes with responsibility, and those chosen have no say. The position is decided by fate.


Every five years, youths gather outside the vineyard to file past the Master of Ceremonies. As they pass, an ancient beret once worn by the region's most esteemed vigneron is placed upon their head. Tiny as he was, the beret is generally too small. But, each time the beret drops snuggly on a bonce a new apprentice is proclaimed. As they say, raising a glass, "if the Haut Lafittes, wear it!"
