Bordeaux and the Brits: Online wine tasting

August 4 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm



Bordeaux lies in the old province of Aquitaine which once belonged to England. Over several centuries English merchants were crucial to Bordeaux, influencing the style of wine produced and setting up the structure of the wine trade in the city itself.

In this, our first online wine event for The National Archives, we dip into England’s historical involvement with Bordeaux and take a look at the exciting range of wines that modern Bordeaux produces.

Beyond the trade in fine, rare and eye-wateringly expensive wines from the top Chateaux, Bordeaux now offers a surprisingly diverse and affordable choice for everyone.

Speaker: Pippa Hayward, Specialist Wine Advisor at The Good Wine Shop

Ever since putting together her first wine list in 1986 the study of wine and the communicating its joys to others have been at the heart of Pippa Hayward’s working life. Pippa also works as a Specialist Wine Advisor at The Good Wine Shop in Kew for over nine years.

This online talk will be presented via the FLOW platform.
