To ensure the event’s success, the BIVB is inviting local professionals such as importers and wine store owners to organize their own Bourgogne wine events. They are free to choose the format, such as winemaker dinners or customer tasting sessions, which will allow their professional customers and Bourgogne wine fans to sample the 2014 vintage and meet those producers and négociants in attendance.

To add to these activities, the BIVB will be proposing a range of different events throughout the week, including tastings for press and sommeliers, Chablis training sessions, and Bourgogne Wine Club meets.
