Are the villages and appellations of Burgundy a mystery to you? Explore the acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Climats of Burgundy as you dive into the diversity of our terroirs. You will learn all about vineyard classifications, winemaking techniques, and what makes Burgundy the envy of the wine world.
Our wine advisors are graduates of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). They offer a thoughtful and documented approach to learn more about the history of wine, the management of biodynamic vineyards, our viticultural techniques and the art of tasting.
Château de Pommard is located a few kilometers from Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy. Our experiences take place in our vineyard, Clos Marey-Monge. Protected from the winds by a wall erected in the nineteenth century, its 20 hectares now constitute the largest private monopoly of Côte d’Or. Since 2015, Clos Marey-Monge has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site alongside the Climats of the Burgundy vineyards. Can you imagine better classroom?
For fifteen years, Jérôme Aucourt introduced tens of thousands of people around the world to the wines of Château de Pommard. His passion for Burgundy and his knowledge of wine was limitless. In memory of our friend, colleague, father, husband, and wine advisor, we have established the Jérôme Aucourt Scholarship at our Ècole V Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) professional wine school. Details of the scholarship program will be published soon. Jérôme is survived by his wife Allison, their two young children, his mother, father, and two brothers.
