WHAT IS THE COURSE ABOUT?

France is without doubt the world’s most famous and most complex wine growing country. We will break down the intricacies of French wine into memorable, bite sized chunks, explained in plain English. You will be on a whistle-stop tour of some of the world’s most famous vineyards matched to their regional cuisine.

COURSE CONTENT

Our French Wine and Food Workshop is a gastronomic tour through France’s famous and lesser-known wine regions. No other country boasts such a culinary heritage: its wines and produce are the envy of the world. France is one of the oldest as well as largest producers of wine in the world, with huge regional variation to match its cuisine.

We will guide you through the wines and dishes of classic regions of Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire and Rhone. We will also introduce the exciting and often good-value wines from the Languedoc- Roussillon, Provence and South-West.

During the day we will pass on insider tips to help you navigate the pitfalls of buying French wine in shops and restaurants – and of course how to handle those snooty sommeliers!

The following will be covered :

  • Overview and history of French food and wine culture
  • Key grape varieties
  • Geography, climate and regions of France
  • Viticulture and wine making practices
  • Wine classification system
  • Wine and food matching
  • A regional wine and food tour
  • The future for France

Nick’s Level 1 course was outstanding!

Although many of us had different levels of knowledge and experience with wine, we all enjoyed participating in the course and felt that we learned a great deal of content and confidence through Nick’s instruction. Nick’s considerable wine making knowledge and experience as well as his practical guidance helped us to work through evaluating various aspects of each wine.

At the end of the course, we all agreed that the course was excellent, Nick was a fantastic instructor, and that we looked forward to Level 2!
