Educational     Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

Revered and iconic, Bordeaux wines easily slip into un-affordable territory. Come learn some tips on how to shop for good value, good quality Bordeaux wines.

Come on a journey through the chateaux and vineyards of this great region and  discover the magic, that is Bordeaux! Your instructor will lead you through a 2 hour wine education class designed by the Bordeaux Ecole de Vin that allows you to taste the different grapes and styles of Bordeaux.  In this class, we will evaluate Bordeaux wines and their distinct styles and personalities,  discuss the geography and climate (with particular emphasis on the region’s multiple viticultural areas and their defining characteristics), and discuss the region’s complex multiple classification systems and the laws by which the wines are governed.

A great wine class for those interested in learning about Bordeaux from the ground up. We will cover all 6 styles of wine coming from Bordeaux: Dry Whites,  Sweet Whites,  Left Bank (St Emilion, Pomerol and Fronsac), Right Bank (Medoc and Graves), and Cotes de Bordeaux
