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.

A great intro into how Bordeaux wines are made, categorized, and blended. A 2hr, city based session in an easily found location close the Quinconces tram stop. Lots of wine obviously included with lots of nibbles too. Matilde, our host, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly too.

I was not a huge fan of wine before this class but learning about how the wine helped a lot! There were 4 people in the class total so it was very intimate and our instructor balanced the English and French speakers well. We were very happy with the education was received and even happier with our decision to book.

We had a wonderful time learning about the different wine regions of France with Colas, who was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience fun and engaging. Finding out about the Bordeaux wine region and how they categorize and label their wines was fascinating and I would definitely recommend this workshop to anyone who has an interest in regional wines.
