Join us for an introduction to the main wine producing regions of France.

Event details


One of the first things you see on the label of a French wine is the region it is from - but what do names like Bourgogne, Bordeaux, and Chablis really mean? This session will introduce the key wine producing regions of France. We will cover how the location and climate affects the wines made there, the grape varieties that are synonymous with the regions, and the styles of wine associated with different labelling terms.

The new series of free bitesize 30-minute webinars are open to anyone and are ideal for beginners looking to learn more about wine.


Edward Wicks DipWSET, Wine Educator, WSET School London

Ed has been working in the drinks business in some form since he turned 18 years old. A long stint as a cocktail bartender laid the foundation for his love of spirits. It was during this time he decided to study the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits qualification, which also ignited his passion for wine. Within a few busy years, he had completed both the Level 3 and Diploma. He was awarded the Porter & Laker Scholarship prize at Level 3 and both the Louis Jadot and Yvonne May Wine Australia Scholarship prizes at Diploma. He is an enthusiastic champion of sweet wines and is always trying to make new converts to the style.
