Weekend des Grands Crus
May 12th & 13th, 2012
This is an "exclusive weekend in the very heart of the prestigious Bordeaux appellations for all fine wine passionates." How cool does that sound? The schedule for the weekend includes a Grand Crus tasting including over a hundred winemakers and chateau owners pouring two vintages of their great wines, including 2009.
Other optional activities include a dinner at a wine estate, a "soiree des grands crus" (at a chic wine bar with a DJ) plus vineyard tours and a golf tournament.
If you're in the market for an engaging, wine-centric visit to France this may, be sure to visit the UGCB site for more info and to register.
