A workshop on Bordeaux Wines

Sadly, there's not many wine workshops or short wine appreciation courses conducted these days on a regular frequency. It will be good to see more casual yet informative workshops with the aim to inform and educate wine enthusiasts. A little education goes a long way to bolster one's confidence when it comes to exploring wines, especially those from not so well known wine regions.

There's a workshop coming up next week. This one though is about wines from a 'relatively well known' region in France :p
