Thanks to Bastien from Valade & Transandine, Gaêtan Gladieux (Vatel Bordeaux Head Sommelier), Jean-Pascal Paubert (Advisor of the Wine Academy), our students were given a brief but concise introduction to the wine producing countries, region and some of the most prestigious wine estates. They were also given explanations about the particularity of the soil what gives some of the best wines on the planet.
They also tasted some of those marvellous products Transandine does import in France and distribute to the professionals (restaurants, cellars).
Below, some samples students got the chance to discover and taste.
A great tribute to Bastien on behalf of Vatel team
