As per Manhattan SC guide, "Well-informed people know that Bordeaux is a French region whose most famous
export is the wine that bears its name." ,this sentence is correct.

But " Whose" should refer to singular nouns , then is this usage appropriate?

Whose follows the noun it refers.

Noun ---> Singular, whose ---> singular
Noun ---> Plural, whose --> plural

Your question is slightly confusing. In the sentence that you've quoted, whose refers to singular noun French region.

In any case, there is very little scope for confusion here.

All relative pronouns (which, that, who, whom, whose) can refer to both singular and plural.
