Course Description

A brilliant course for anyone wanting to get to grips with the French Wine Regions.

Kicking off with an Introdcution to Wine Tasting - how to taste, what the buzz words mean, like, legs and tears, body, tannin, acidity. Learn to speak confidently about wine.

Week 2 - heading to Bordeaux and the Loire Valley. Bordeaux famed for red wines of Medoc and St Emilion. Then the Loire Valley famed for Vouvray, Sancerre, Chinon, to name a few. Shame we only have time for 6 wines. We could spend a whole day here.

Week 3 - off to Burgundy and the South of France. The South, often gets overlooked, but this is where you'll find the innovators, less rules and regulations so more freedom for the wine makers. Then to Burgundy, the most expensive wine ever sold was from here at £500k. Sadly we couldn't afford that one, but we do have some delicious examples for you to taste.

Week 4 - brings our 4 week tour to a close and heading to the white wines of Alsace, a unique French wine region, find out why. Then to the Rhone Valley, where we'll be tasting some big reds and helping you find the style you love and not have to pay a small fortune!
