Jancis Robinson MW and Étienne de Montille join us for this year’s festival!

jancis robinson wine writer

We are thrilled to announce that Master of Wine Jancis Robinson (above) — one of the top wine writers in the world today — will be the keynote speaker of this year’s Boulder Burgundy Festival!

Wine critic for the Financial Times, editor of the landmark Oxford Companion to Wine and Wine Grapes (the world’s most comprehensive ampelographic survey), and a “member of the Royal Household Wine Committee” (in other words, a wine buyer for the Queen of England), Jancis is also the editor of Purple Pages, one of the top online resources for tasting notes and wine writing today.

She’s also one of the nicest and down-to-earth people working in wine today. We are overjoyed and over the moon that she will be joining us.

Below please find the tentative schedule for this year’s festival, which will feature the wines of Domaine de Montille and legacy winemaker Étienne de Montille (stay tuned for more coverage of the domaine and winemaker Étienne).

This year’s line up is going to be tough to beat and we expect events to sell-out very swiftly. So please also stay tuned for registration updates.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you this year in Boulder!
