Bourgogne Virtual Wine Masterclass

Bourgogne, home of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, boasts more recognised quality wine than any other French wine region. Join a virtual wine masterclass with a 20% discount for AF members to learn and taste wine with French wine experts.

Bourgogne takes the French concept of ‘Terroir’ and makes it their own. Every parcel of land is recognised for its uniqueness. Although one fifth of the size of Bordeaux, Bourgogne has more quality wine parcels (AOPs) than any region in France.

Join the French Wine School for a virtual Bourgogne wine masterclass from the comfort of your own home and they will guide you through a fun and enlightening tasting, hosted by Brigid Kennedy, renowned Master of Wine Andrea Pritzker.

What you will learn:

  • Why Bourgogne soil is so unique (and ancient!) and how it impacts the wine.
  • How the appellation system of France works in Bourgogne (knowing this helps interpret wine labels & quality).
  • Geology, topography and climate differences and what that does to wine.
  • How Chardonnay differs from Chablis in the North to Mâconnais in the South
  • Taste four benchmark wines from these famous regions.

How does a virtual tasting work?

It’s very relaxed! First, the French Wine School will cover the backstory of wine in Bourgogne and differences in each subregion, then focus on tasting wines. Lastly will be an open Q&A. Questions may be asked all the way through via the chat function and any additional queries will  be aimed to be addressed during the tasting or the open Q&A.

Once registered, all participants will receive a password and link to join the tasting.

Choices with the wine on the night:

  1. Buy the four pack below and have it sent to you directly. Easy.
  2. OR taste your own favourite local Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and do your own comparison.
