The course takes place over six weeks, covering the world’s most famous wine regions. You will learn about the style, quality and price of wines produced in Burgundy, Rhône, Italy, Spain, Champagne and – of course – Bordeaux. You will also have the chance to sample the Old World’s rivals, wines of similar styles being made in the New World today, deciding for yourself which you like best. You will leave the course with a better understanding of why these regions have made a name for themselves, and just what it is that makes their wines unique.
