Narrated by Burghound himself, this nearly 10-hour, 7-part series systematically examines every important aspect of Burgundy while helping the Burgundy enthusiast understand all of the must-know concepts. These key ideas are carefully explained with pertinent information regarding Burgundy’s history and regional organization, including in-depth coverage of its world-famous communes and terroirs. Included is valuable and detailed insider information on how the best wines are grown, vinified and marketed. Burgundy Essentials is also packed with tons of authoritative advice on world class producers, vineyards and vintages. There is a plethora of useful tips on how to obtain the best bang for your buck in acquiring value burgundies as well as expert guidance on how to buy and collect up and down the price spectrum and appellation hierarchy. The program also offers many useful suggestions on how to best serve and enjoy Burgundies.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What if I plan to replace my iPhone, iPad or other device with the Flux Player on it? You simply need to open the Flux Player on the device you no longer plan to use and choose SETTINGS from the menu. Then choose DEAUTHORIZE this device. You will need to enter your password to deauthorize the device. Once your old device has been deauthorized, install the Flux Player on your new device and sign-in.
Do I need an internet connection? An internet connection is only required when downloading new content. Once the content is fully downloaded, you can use the content anywhere but only on the device you download it on as it is non-transferable.
What if I lose my internet connection during download? If your download is suspended for any reason, just double-click the title or right-click and select Resume Download.
Can I listen to my content while it is downloading? Provided your internet connection is fast enough, you can begin playback of audio within a few seconds of starting the download, however we suggest waiting until it is fully downloaded or some words may be clipped without your knowledge during playback.
I see a message about not enough storage? The content is downloaded to your computer or mobile device. If you see a message warning you that there is not enough storage, you will need to free up some storage space and try downloading again. The total Burgundy Essentials Audio Series is approximately 535 MB.
How do I download on the second device? Keep in mind that you are only permitted one download on two devices so be sure to select the correct device first. From the device you want to download the audio series on, go to http://burghound.flickrocket.com/loginoptions.aspx. Download and install the Flux Player, then open the Flux Player and sign in using the same email as the first download and the password you were assigned upon ordering (in the information email). When you double click on the Audio Series, it will download.
I am getting a “Host not found” error in the Flux Media Player? You are probably behind a corporate firewall that is preventing the Flux Player from accessing the internet. The Flux Player needs access to www.flickrocket.com through port 80 (standard http) and 443 (SSL). You can configure the firewall settings by opening the Flux Player and choosing File>Settings and then clicking on the Network tab. Your system administrator should be able to provide the necessary settings. If that does not resolve the problem, you can try temporarily disabling any anti-virus or internet security software to determine if those applications are interfering with the internet connection. The Flux Media Player is certified virus free.
I downloaded and installed the Flux Player on my computer, but where do I find it?
– Mac users can find the Flux Player in the Applications folder. Choose Go>Applications from the main Apple Finder menu. Then locate the Flux Player in that folder and start it. You can also drag the Flux Player icon to the Dock or create an alias on the desktop to make it easier to access.
– Windows 7 users can click on the Start menu and enter Flux Player in the search field. After the Flux Player appears in the list, right-click and pin to the taskbar or send a shortcut to the desktop.
– Windows 8 users can tap the Windows logo key (between the Ctrl and Alt keys) to open the Apps screen. Locate the Flux Player and right-click to add the Flux Player to your Taskbar.
– Windows 10 users can tap the Windows logo key (between the Ctrl and Alt keys) and select All Apps. Locate the Flux Player and right-click to add the Flux Player to your Taskbar.
Can I use AirPlay? Apple’s AirPlay is available for playback of audio on Apple iOS devices.
What are the tabs for on the top of the Flux Player: “Library, Shop, Copy, Burn”? These buttons have to do with FlickRocket and do NOT pertain to the Audio Series. Your Library will only have the audio program, and you cannot shop through FlickRocket or Copy/Burn the audio series.
How can I get technical help? There are several ways to request support, but making the request directly from within the player will help the FlickRocket team (who are responsible for fulfillment and the media player) resolve your problem as quickly as possible. To submit a request, open the player, select Help from the menu, and then choose Contact support. There will be an area for you to enter a detailed description of the problem. Make certain the checkbox is enabled and click Send. You can also contact FlickRocket via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
