Come and join us over 4 weeknight evenings as we discover one of the most important countries in the wine world - France! 

Wine is such an integral part to French culture and the country has a long history of wine production, with fantastic wines from regions such as Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Loire Valley.

The proportion of land used for viticulture in France is expansive, and the quality of wine produced is widely acknowledged to be amongst the best in the world. 


It's fair to say, the French way of life has many admirers and with large volumes of French wine making its way to Australia, there's never been a better time to learn more.

This course focuses on the major wine regions of France, and gives participants the opportunity to taste some key examples of major wines while learning more about what makes each region so unique.


All sessions are led by a wine tutor and include a digital presentation and full tasting notes.

Course Program:

  • Session 1 - Burgundy, Beaujolais & Champagne 

  • Session 2 - Bordeaux & Southwest France 

  • Session 3 - Loire Valley & Alsace 

  • Session 4 - Northern & Southern Rhone Valley's & Southern France
