Bordeaux Bootcamp

Many people who tour with me or attend class already have some knowledge of Bordeaux. This usually comes from the bottle – a pretty good place to start – but they are looking to get to know the place behind the label.

Others know nothing about Bordeaux except perhaps a few preconceived ideas and want to know the truth behind the image.

Bordeaux Bootcamp is an opportunity for me to summarise some of the themes I teach in class and cover when I tour with clients. It also answers some of the most frequently asked questions by students and the visitors to the vineyards.

There are plenty of excellent books about Bordeaux; either Château by Château or tasting guides. Bordeaux Bootcamp is neither of these; it is designed to look at Bordeaux basics and be a quick guide to the key elements that make Bordeaux the iconic region it is. Bordeaux wine education made simple.

If you are planning to visit and want some background beforehand, or if you have already toured or been to a class with me and could benefit from a little revision and update Bordeaux Bootcamp is for you.
