Event Description

The region of Médoc is home to some of the most recognizable names producing world famous wines. The wines of the Médoc, sitting on a triangular slice of land on Bordeaux’s ‘Left Bank’ has been producing notable high-quality wines for over 800 years. Known for its iconic red wines, the Médoc, year in and year out produces wines of great breed, elegance, finesse and longevity. Join Kevin Zraly, author of ‘Windows on the World Complete Wine Course’ and recipient of the James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award and Robin Kelley O’Connor, Bordeaux Expert and International Bordeaux Wine Educator for an exploration of the 8 Communes of the Médoc: Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac, Saint-Estèphe, Haut-Médoc, Listrac- Médoc, Moulis-en-Médoc and Médoc. There will be an in-depth look at the famed Grand Cru Classé classification established at Emperor Napoleon III’s Exposition Universelle of 1855 in Paris and the Cru Bourgeois classification established in 1932. A selection of wines will showcase the splendor and grandeur of the Grand Cru Classé and Cru Bourgeois.
