In this 45-minute mini tutorial, we’ll explore the famous region of South West France – Bordeaux. We’ll cover ‘left bank’, ‘right bank’ and everything in between discussing the grape varieties used; styles of wine produced and a basic introduction to the quality system.

This is an ideal event for those starting out on their journey of discovery into wine. It will give members tools to better understand the complex region and hopefully provide a little more confidence when buying the wines.

Wines for this event will be released on the week of 4th October.
