Bordeaux Wine School Wine Courses


The fact that Bordeaux is a reference for all wine lovers is hardly an accident. The wines come from a completely unique terrior with an exceptional climate and geographical location. Bordeaux's unique flavour is linked to the careful blending of several grape varieties, which varies according to terrior and chateau. Blending is a delicate operation carried out by a winegrower, cellar master, or oenologist to produce impeccable wines year after year. In fact, blends are better balanced than wines made from just one type of grape. All quality wines in Bordeaux come under the Appellation d'Origine Controlee (AOC) system, in keeping with strictly regulated viticultural and winemaking techniques, and only in authorized areas. French wine law defines not only where and how Bordeaux wine is produced, but also attributes the right to an appellation only after a wine has been accepted by professionals at a blind tasting. Bordeaux wine labels reflect these rigorous production methods and reliable quality. Throughout the workshops, we will help you understand where Bordeaux wine comes from, what they taste like, when they are best to drink, and how long they can be aged. Advice on how to taste Bordeaux wine will help you fully appreciate them. The workshops are led by Bordeaux Wine School accredited tutors who are wine experts and practitioners of wine service professionals.


The Bordeaux Wine School was founded by the Bordeaux Wine Trade Council (CIVB). The aim of the specialised training courses provided by the Wine School is to enable people to familiarise themselves with Bordeaux wines, and learn the art of choosing and tasting them.

The HKMA is an accredited centre to offer wine courses of the Bordeaux Wine School. Participants will receive an official certificate issued by the Bordeaux Wine School on completion of each workshop.
