We are delighted to announce that the Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB) has become a one of our Bronze Corporate Patrons.

As a Bronze Corporate Patron, the Bourgogne Wine Board joins a growing list of high-profile organisations in the trade who have partnered with us in recognition of our vital role in the global wine and spirits industry. Our Corporate Patrons programme provides funding to help us develop our world-class courses and qualifications, as well as our online global campus and professional membership body for graduates. The programme also helps organisations add value to their own business by maximising the benefits of training and giving them access to our global network of professionals and enthusiasts.

The Bourgogne Wine Board is a professional organisation which brings together all Bourgogne winegrowers and wine merchants. Its role is to represent and protect the interests of Bourgogne wines, professional winemakers and merchants as well as to define and implement Bourgogne’s technical, economic and marketing strategy.

Ian Harris, WSET Chief Executive, says, “We’re honoured to welcome such a prestigious generic body as the Bourgogne Wine Board to our growing international Corporate Patrons network. Bourgogne is a hugely influential region in the world of wine, and we look forward to working with them and supporting each other in achieving our educational goals.

Anne Moreau, Co-President of the communications commission for the Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB), says, “We have always placed education first in our global communications, especially in export markets. We believe that education is about sharing the values of conviviality and friendship, which are so deeply rooted in our region, as much as information - and this is what motivated us to become a WSET corporate patron. We look forward to developing our programme together and sharing our passion for Bourgogne wines with the WSET community.
