Wine Class: Finding Value in Burgundy (Video)

Our Wine Class from November 12 is Available Now for Paying Subscribers

< 1 min read

On Sunday, November 12, paying subscribers of Opening a Bottle joined me for a one-hour class on finding value in the increasingly expensive realm of Burgundy wine. We explored why these wines are so esteemed, the system by which they are categorized, and why so many of these wines have become so expensive. Then, I offered ways to encounter truly “Burgundian” wines for under $100 (or as low as $22 in some cases).

The video is below with a published password that needs to be entered to activate the class. As an accompaniment to this class, I also offered links to several resources which can be found below the video.
