Event Description

Learn why France still makes some of the best wines in the world. Discover the best value from Bordeaux, and taste some wines from the left bank. Compare these Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wines to the right bank and the top appellations of Saint Emilion and Pomerol, where Merlot makes up the majority of the blend.

You will have the opportunity to taste Bordeaux Premium examples from St-Emilion, Lalande de Pomerol and St-Estephe from Cecile's very own wine cellars ... aged to perfection!

Learn how to avoid mistakes and buy the best value-for-money wines from this world-famous wine region. Learn how mature French wines taste, and be confident to send them back in restaurants if corked! Find out how wine is made and the importance of blends - especially important here in Bordeaux.

However, let's not forget that the New World is growing stronger and stronger, year after year. Exciting wine-producing countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the US (not just California!), Chile and South Africa are now making the up-and-coming wines that everyone is buying! So let's discover what makes those countries so special ... we will taste all wines blind in order to leave preconceptions at the door and truly explore our tastebuds and wine preferences.
