Bordeaux is at the heart of one of the most famous wine regions in the world, renowned for the diversity and quality of its wines.
This success is not only linked to the excellence of its terroirs and the know-how of the winemakers in the region, but also to the quality of the Bordeaux School of Oenology that has supported professionals in the sector for nearly 150 years.
The prominence of the vine and wine sector in the region of Bordeaux has been further strengthened by the creation of the University of Bordeaux’s Institute of Vine and Wine Sciences in 2009, and in 2016 by the opening of the “Cité du Vin“ museum, both promoting the oenological and cultural heritage of wine around the world.
In this context, it is only natural that Bordeaux has been chosen to initiate links between wine and sake, two products that share the same cultural values.
The Niigata region is renowned for producing traditional sake that is among the best in Japan. By combining the expertise of scientists and specialists of Bordeaux wines and Niigata sakes, this summer school offers the very best conditions for mastering the current issues in oenology and sakeology.
