Bordeaux L'Ecole du Vin - Your Official Certificate Issued by the CIVB

WHY STUDY Bordeaux

Bordeaux has assumed a massively influential status in the world of fine wine as a leitmotif of wealth, power and influence. Now change is coming to Bordeaux, with traditional customers like the US and the UK falling away, as China's new rich push prices to stratospheric levels. The terroir, history, regulations, expressions, producers and nuances of this incredibly important wine region are as complex and complicated as the wines themselves. It has single handedly influenced, bred & inspired the entire NEW WORLD of wine, as well as an incredible amount of OLD WORLD wine phenomenons such as the "Super Tuscans" and the Spanish Navarra & Priorat appellations just to name a few.
