What’s On-Line is a series of free, pre-recorded online talks delivered by our experts, here at The National Archives.

Online Wine Tastings

The province of Aquitaine, in which the city of Bordeaux lies, once belonged to England and for several centuries English merchants were crucial to the fortunes of Bordeaux wine, influencing the style of wine produced and forming much of the wine trade structure in the city itself.

In our first online wine event, tasting tutor Pippa Hayward dips into England’s historical involvement with Bordeaux, while showcasing the exciting range of wines that modern Bordeaux produces.

Beyond the trade in fine, rare and eye-wateringly expensive wines from the top Chateaux, Bordeaux now offers a surprisingly diverse and affordable choice for everyone.

Ever since putting together her first wine list in 1986 the study of wine and the communicating its joys to others have been at the heart of Pippa Hayward’s working life. Pippa also works as a Specialist Wine Advisor at The Good Wine Shop in Kew for over nine years.
