Our Role

Our role is to help you discover Bordeaux wines no matter where you live

The CIVB (Bordeaux Wine Council) created the Bordeaux Wine School in 1989, and our mission ever since has been to help you discover the many facets of our wines through hands-on tasting workshops and straightforward introductory courses!

The Bordeaux Wine School is housed in an elegant building in central Bordeaux, just above the must-visit CIVB wine bar.

Since 2006, we’ve also been active all over the world through our international network of accredited tutors and renowned partner establishments.
