Tour de France: Discover Bordeaux
We were awarded in July 2010 with official accreditation from l'Ecole du Vin in Bordeaux as an official Bordeaux educator and ambassador. We are delighted to host another Bordeaux tasting focussing on the fantastic wines that can be found in this famous and diverse region.
"We attended a wine tasting on wines from Bordeaux after being bought a voucher as a gift. Neither of us had done a wine tasting before and so weren't sure what to expect but we both had a great evening. Shane, the instructor, was extremely knowledgeable and obviously an expert in his field, yet he was very down to earth and did not come across at all patronising. He made the class really fun and the two hours flew by! We got to sample a variety of wines which are all available to buy in local shops/online for reasonable prices so we will definitely be picking up a bottle or two of the wines we tried."

The classic wine region of Bordeaux is home to many black grape varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc producing some of the instantly recognised names such as Margaux, Pauillac, Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. In addition we find white grape varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon producing wonderful refreshing dry whites such as Entre-deux-Mers and Pessac-Leognan with the added touch of the most lauded sweet wine in the world, Sauternes.
The tasting will unearth the difference between general Bordeaux wine and Grand Cru Classe with everything in between. This is a tasting not to be missed!
