Wine estates with a connection to Ireland are known as ‘The Irish Wine Geese’, an adaptation of the term ‘Wild Geese’. This term originally referred specifically to soldiers who fled Ireland to France after the Battle of the Boyne. It then came to be used more broadly to refer to any Irish people who emigrated during the 16th -18th centuries. The term ‘Wine Geese’ evolved later to refer to the Irish emigrants who over the centuries have become involved in the wine trade, most notably in Bordeaux in France but more recently all over the world. Two of these most revered Estates in Bordeaux are Chateau Leoville Barton and Chateal Lynch Bages. This gift celebrates Irish roots in the most prestigeous wine region of them all.
