Timothy Magnus, of Magnus Vinum in Zurich, is a Bourgogne Wines Official Ambassador, a Weinakademiker, and holds the WSET Diploma in Wine & Spirits. He will be teaching the Wine Scholar Guild’s first ever Master-Level Intensive in Beaune in May 2020.
His genuine passion for the appellations, crus, and communes, as well as appreciation for the differences between them, is a touchstone in his professional life as an educator and importer. While explaining strategies for choosing a Bourgogne wine for various budgets, Timothy explains how, “there’s life beyond Mersault and Puligny Montrachet” and why there’s a Fixin revival of sorts.
Finally, we learn how the Beaune intensive is different from, as well as complimentary to, the Wine Scholar Guild’s current Bourgogne Master-Level online course. Timothy believes the fully immersive environment in the region, a combination of classroom, wine tasting, and walking the vineyards, makes the multi-dimensional learning experience key to understanding one of the world’s most complex wine regions.
