A Tour of Bordeaux – A Movable Seminar
December 1, 2018, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20
Bordeaux holds a coveted place in the world of wine. Bordeaux introduced the concept of classification in 1855 under Napoleon III, and it now serves as an expression of quality and prestige worldwide. The principle of the crus classés (“classified growths”) perfectly illustrates the synthesis of a terroir’s typical characteristics and dedicated human intervention over many generations to ensure quality. We aim to scratch the surface of the Bordeaux terroir and show you some of the wonders it holds.
Our Tour of Bordeaux will be a different experience than our regular Saturday Seminar. This will be a Movable Seminar. In groups of 8 to 10, you will visit 4 locations where a presenter will sample and discuss 3 wines that highlight the particular aspects of Bordeaux:
- Bordeaux Introduction
- Right Bank
- Left Bank
- Blanc and Sauternes
Your group will traverse your way across Arroyo Vino as you explore the different regions. Departure times are 3.00pm, 3.15pm, 3.30pm, 3.45pm, 4.00pm and 4.15pm. You will be asked for your preferred time when you make your reservation. We may ask you to select an alternate if your preferred time is already full.
The Seminar Tour will begin promptly at scheduled time – please arrive a few minutes before.
Includes an appropriately paired snack
