The activities

Discover the activities of eat! BRUSSELS, drink! BORDEAUX's festival :  

  • The Bordeaux Wine School

  • The Bordeaux Wine School

  • Whether you’re a passionate wine lover, a novice, an expert or just curious, the Bordeaux Wine School offers you a voyage of initiation through the wines of the Bordeaux region, without leaving the centre of Brussels!

    For thousands of years, the know-how and secrets of Bordeaux wines has been passed down through the generations. The Bordeaux Wine School was born of the desire to share this living heritage with as many people in the world as possible!

    Terroirs, grape varieties, anecdotes, classing systems, appellations... a fun discovery tour to help you tell your Merlot from your Cabernet Sauvignon, pair your food and your wine or even just simply find the words to describe what you sense and taste.

    Thanks to your WINE PASS, throughout the festival, you can take part in a fun and gastronomic workshop! This year, the school and its team of passionate instructors have numerous surprises to be discovered soon. Booking is recommended.
