BORDEAUX, FRANCE June 22, 2020 – The Bordeaux Wine School, the official education platform for the Bordeaux wine region, has launched a series of webinars for trade professionals and wine lovers to learn from the industry’s foremost experts. The new digital series, How the Masters Tackle Bordeaux, addresses current themes such as sustainability, next gen winemaking and best value wines. Master of Wine Mary Gorman-McAdams, Master Sommelier Laura Williamson and Master Sommelier Jesse Becker guide the one-hour webinars together with Bordeaux-based winemakers and experts. How the Masters Tackle Bordeaux launched on May 6 and will introduce new content monthly through year-end 2020.

“Bordeaux is a large and wonderfully diverse wine region. It is always innovating – so there is continually something new to learn” says Mary Gorman-McAdams, Master of Wine and accredited tutor for The Bordeaux Wine School. “Embracing this new digital reality, we are offering professionals and consumers unprecedented access to the people behind today’s Bordeaux wines.
