In 2006, Maison Ginestet set up an international wine school in a space set aside for the purpose at its Carignan-de-Bordeaux site.

Through the GINESTET WINE ACADEMY, Maison Ginestet offers its commercial partners (importers, distributers) the expertise it has gained over more than a century of producing and marketing Bordeaux wines.



The training programme consists of theoretical courses (viticulture, oenology, marketing, the organisation of the Bordeaux market, customer asset management etc.), as well as technical workshops (blending practices, tastings etc.) and Château visits. These courses are run by Maison Ginestet staff, all of whom are experts in their respective fields.

This initiative has allowed Maison Ginestet to introduce new operators to (and further educate more experienced operators in) a responsible approach to promoting Bordeaux wines through education, allowing them to develop their sales.
