Finding Value in Bourgogne: Burgundy Wine Class

November 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MST

Château de Rully and a clos vineyard, Burgundy, France.

No other wine region carries the same level of mystique as Burgundy, France. Unfortunately, that also means that no other region has more expensive wines. Volumes have been reduced by climate change, while global demand for the exquisite wines that remain has only increased. Has Burgundy become too exclusive for budget-minded lovers of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay? Or is there still a way to taste these lean, complex and deeply mineral wines without breaking the bank?

We are here to tell you the answer to the first question is “not quite.” And to the second question? “Yes, yes there is.”

Fresh off an editorial research trip to the region, our Editor-in-Chief Kevin Day will lend his insights on the regional and village-level wines that still consistently deliver for under $50, and lead a tasting of 2 to 3 wines in this live class on Zoom. As always, a recording of the class will be presented for paying subscribers who cannot attend, and a comprehensive study guide will be provided at a later date, giving you the ability to shop with confidence for these wines.

This class is for Opening a Bottle subscribers only.

Please note: This class was originally listed for November 19, but has moved to November 12 to spread out our programming around Thanksgiving and the holidays.
