    I'm an armature bread baker and really enjoy making hearty whole wheat bread
    and the Bordeaux wheat is one of the few that I can tell the difference between the others including einkorn. I also like the Marquis but prefer the whole berries vs the flour.. Looking forward to trying the other wheat varieties.

    Excellent and personal service

    I ordered the Rouge de Bordeaux flour as a gift for someone. Delivery time was important and the woman who was in ordering/ customer service was amazing in her attention to detail, following up on a note I had attached to my order about it being a gift and requesting they not to put price and cost on the packing slip. Not only was it delivered perfectly but she/Barton Springs got it there on time, even with blizzards all around! And, I can now personally attest to the excellent flavor and quality — I was given some of the flour back as a thank you, and I got to taste the bread made with it. Rich flavor and unmistakable aroma. Thank you. My first time ordering from Barton Springs will not be my last.

    One of my faves!

    Rouge de Bordeaux is a constant in my sourdough bread flour rotations! Pairs well with Einkorn.
