The top wines from Burgundy, which are highly desired these days, are only bottled in very small editions. This pushes prices to astronomical heights, so that many people have no access to the great Chardonnays and Pinots Noirs from the Côte d'or. But if you look for worthwhile alternatives away from the big names, you will find wines from up-and-coming wineries that still offer reasonable value for money, allowing even less well-heeled noses to enter this fascinating world. Willi Klinger has been dealing with this area for over three decades and always finds real insider tips. And then there is the Beaujolais beyond trivial mass wines to discover, far too little known plants from those specific volcanic soils of the Beaujolais Crus, which help the Gamay grape to surprising complexity and longevity.

Willi Klinger, wine expert and known for his sharp tongue, presents together with Gerhard Retter, sommelier and maître, the real insider tips from Burgundy and the Beaujolais in the School of Wine at the VieVinum!
