Small-Group Wine Tasting and Workshop in Bordeaux

    What to Expect
    Enhance your understanding and appreciation of French wine with this 2-hour wine workshop. Begin with an overview of French wine regions from your professional wine guide. Learn about wine terminology such as 'terroir' and 'appellation' as you taste wines from regions like  Burgundy, Côtes du Rhône, Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. 
    Find out how to decipher a French wine label. Learn how to identify a wine's aromas and flavors and how to interpret the color of a wine. As you taste, you'll no doubt start to develop – or enhance existing – preferences for these different wine characteristics. This is a skill that will serve you well long after you leave the class, since you'll learn how to not only identify but also describe the wines you like best.
    At the conclusion of the lesson, you'll put all this new-found knowledge to use by creating a custom blend of your own wine using two varietals local to Bordeaux – Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Throughout the workshop, you'll sample eight different wines and nibble on  hors d'oeuvres such as cured meats, cheese and fresh bread.
    Throughout the workshop, your lesson leader is on hand to answer questions and help enhance the experience. As you depart, you'll get a diploma to remember your educational Bordeaux wine workshop.

    Hi. I’m actually not sure but my sense is that they do the short courses in the morning and then head to the vineyards. The website is good if you want to contact them directly. Enjoy it! Bordeaux is lovely A
