In our first ever online wine tasting, tutor Pippa Hayward dips into England’s historical involvement with Bordeaux, while showcasing the exciting range of wines that modern Bordeaux produces.

The province of Aquitaine once belonged to England and for several centuries English merchants were crucial to the fortunes of Bordeaux wine. In this special wine tasting event, you’ll explore the history of England’s involvement and recent developments on Bordeaux wine, with a selection of dry and sweet whites and, of course, red wines.
