Wine Tasting Workshops: A Flavorful Journey


Seeking a sprinkle of enlightenment with your wine? Bordeaux's wine-tasting workshops are your gateway to grape mastery. Picture yourself swirling a glass of prestigious Grand Cru Classé, decoding the intricacies of vine, vintage, and vigor for just €35. These workshops are not mere sessions; they are sensory expeditions led by the knowledgeable guides of SARL Maximitas France in partnership with the Bordeaux Tourist Office. They guide you through a tasting maze of terroir.


Max Bordeaux is a wine aficionado's dream. Here, for a story and a taste, you can sample the pinnacle of Bordeaux's offerings "by the glass." It's akin to speed dating with wines, where you can court the finest vintages before committing to a bottle. This innovative approach is thanks to the ingenious concept of Norwegian wine merchant Henning Thoresen. Moreover, the occasionally green Bordeaux sky creates a picturesque complement to the hues of the wines.

A Bordeaux wine-tasting workshop that is not to be missed is available for only €25. It provides a delightful expedition through the AOCs of Margaux, Saint-Emilion, and beyond. It's a playground for wine enthusiasts, where each swirl, sniff, and sip reveal new facets of Bordeaux's complex bouquet.
