William Kelley
Wine Advocate Reviewer
During his time at Oxford University studying history at St. John's College, Kelley served for four years as the president of the Oxford University Wine Circle, the world’s oldest tasting group of its kind. In addition to tastings with the Old World's greatest producers, he brought many of California's most celebrated and exciting wineries to Oxford for the first time. Kelley had the unique privilege to cut his teeth as a taster on many of the great wines of Burgundy of the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s. Having worked harvests in California and Burgundy, Kelley’s first-hand experiences further inform his writing and criticism with a deeper understanding of viticulture and winemaking. A former correspondent for the wines of Burgundy for the UK’s Decanter magazine, creator of his own wine blog, William Kelley: Thoughts on Wine, and a contributor for The Robb Report and Noble Rot, William was short-listed for the Louis Roederer Emerging Wine Writer of the Year Award. William Kelley covers the regions of Burgundy, Chablis, Beaujolais, California Central Coast and Washington State for Robert Parker Wine Advocate.


The remarkable 2015 vintage, which produced wines of great concentration, is revealed to you through outstanding discoveries along the Côte de Beaune, featuring growers known to excel in their specific appellation. 

It is noteworthy that most of these wines are almost impossible to find and buy due to their rarity and small production. This is a unique opportunity to taste some of the best 2015s from the Côte de Beaune.

The wines, menus and speakers indicated are correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change, due to unforeseen circumstances. In the event that a speaker, vintage, or wine is not available on the day of the event, all efforts will be made to find an appropriate substitute.
