INTERNATIONALLY : 18th November Rendez-vous avec les Vins de Bourgogne


INTERNATIONALLY : 18th November Rendez-vous avec les Vins de Bourgogne

"Rendezvous avec les vins de Bourgogne" on 18th November 2020 – save the date!

"Rendez-vous avec les Vins de Bourgogne" returns, featuring the appellation “Mâcon + geographical denomination”. It will be broadcast in the USA, Canada, Belgium, France, Germany, Norway, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea

“Rendezvous avec les vins de Bourgogne” is a training program presented as a TV show, broadcast via satellite around the world. It is presented by Jean-Pierre Renard, expert Bourgogne wines trainer.

To guarantee as wide an international audience as possible, we draw upon our network of Bourgogne official Wine ambassadors around the world, who numbered 60 in 2020. They invite their key contacts, including sommeliers, journalists, and winestore owners to watch the show. Some of our trainers even integrate the show in the curriculum for their trainee sommelier students. The “Rendezvous avec les vins de Bourgogne” concept allows us to reach out to some 400 market influencers in a single day with the help of our network.

The show is divided into two parts.

The first part offers a presentation of a chosen appellation with reports, an interview with a winegrower or négociant, and an explanation of the characteristics of the terroir from the map of the appellation.

The second part is dedicated to a live tasting of six wines, which are dispatched ahead of time from the Bourgogne winegrowing region and which are tasted simultaneously by every participant, who can send in their questions via Twitter with the hashtag #BIVBRDV, and receive real-time answers from Jean-Pierre Renard.

The show is broadcast five times over the day in both English and French, between 9:00am and 10:00pm.

If you are outside of France and would like to participate in the next show, then contact your local Official Bourgogne Wines Educator. Click here for a list.
