William Kelley
Wine Advocate Reviewer
William Kelley developed a love of wine while studying at Oxford, where he presided over the University's prestigious Wine Circle for three years while completing a doctorate in history. In addition to tastings with many of 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, 1950s and 1960s. After a stint covering Burgundy for Decanter magazine and working harvests in both California and the Côte d'Or, he made the happy move to The Wine Advocate in 2017. His first-hand experience making wine informs the way he writes about it. Today, he reviews the wines of Burgundy, Champagne, Madeira and English Sparkling Wine.


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.
