BORDEAUX: NEW NEWS ON THE OLD REGION!
We love teaching about Bordeaux for a two reasons.
First, it’s historic and traditional. It’s a region known worldwide for quality and a well-earned reputation.
But second, it’s one of the most progressive and fast-changing regions in France.
This class will be broken into two parts. Part one will be the core Bordeaux information: regions, grape varieties, terroir, history, vintages, and more. Everything you really need to know to be a more successful Bordeaux shopper. Part two will be about modern developments, from the incredible Museum of Wine to the approval of new grape varieties to combat climate change. We will finish up the class with our number one hint on where to stay to have the most amazing and intimate Bordeaux experience imaginable (and it’s totally affordable).
As always, no specific wines are needed to have to enjoy the class. We teach on the model of “learn today to shop smarter tomorrow.” Enjoy a glass or two of anything you wish while learning. (Even a beer if you wish … don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.)
The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen along with his wife Angela. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating.
We hope you can join us for BORDEAUX DETAILED!
