Bordeaux Masterclass


Bordeaux is one of the most famous names for wine. Well known for its gastronomy, architecture and of course all the vineyards. With 54 appellations in Bordeaux, right bank, left bank, grand cru or 1er cru classee, it can be a bit daunting and confusing trying to decipher the difference in complex rules and classifications.

For this Masterclass, we will go through everything, with our Bordeaux specialist guiding us.

Our host, Daniel Airoldi, is the importer of Airoldi Fine Wine and is a specialist in Bordeaux. He is Bordeaux born and bred and knows the area (and its quirks) like the back of his hand.
