An introduction to French wine

We’re organising another wine tasting in our River House venue, hosted again by wine expert Colin Burbidge of The Lancashire Wine School.

This time we’ll be exploring the sometimes obscure world of French wine, some of the world’s most illustrious wine-producing regions and the spiritual home of a few of the world’s great grape varieties.

You’ll get to taste six premium wines made by top producers from famous regions including Bordeaux, Burgundy, The Loire Valley and the Rhône.

For those unfamiliar, we’ll go through how to taste wine like a professional. You’ll learn about key grape varieties from which France’s finest wines are made and the affects of climate, geography and winemaking on taste and flavour. We will also deal with the somewhat complicated terminologies found on French wine bottles.
