Event Description

This 4 week Online Vive La France course will really help you get to grips with classic French wine styles.

Many of the grape varieties we love and enjoy drinking from around the world are native to France - Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and many more. France has so much to offer with its beautiful wine regions, wine styles and fantastic food culture and this course will bring it to life for you.

Each week we will introduce you to different regions in a one hour virtual tasting with three wines. This gives us the chance to dig a little deeper and explain what you can expect from these areas in terms of wine styles, grapes and food culture. Each session is live and is recorded should you want to review it later. Food pairing suggestions are sent out in advance so you can make an evening of it.


We have put together a really fantastic 12 bottle case with our friends at Les Caves de Pyrene that you can buy to taste along with us.
