The Spread the word theme will be used in the UK during this Bourgogne Week.
After revealing unusual or overlooked appellations from the region, time has come to bring them under the spotlight and to make them known to the consumers.
During the Bourgogne Week, the wine expert Matt Walls will visit the tastings to unveil one or two lesser-known appellations. He will post these precious finds on our website as he travels from one tasting to the next.
Later in the year, the Bourgogne wines appellations will have other occasions to be in the spotlight in the UK. They will be on everyone’s lips as the word of mouth will rise, woven into a series of activities like out-of-town seminars for independent wine merchants and on-trade professionals, press and blogger outreach, a press trip to the region, a digital program to highlight the restaurants and wine shops which have decided to propose lesser-known wines on their wine list and much more to come.
