11th Annual Weekend des Grands Crus

Next week thousands of journalists will be in Bordeaux to celebrate the 2015 vintage, but just a few months after that thousands of people who love Bordeaux will be in town for what is absolutely the best wine tasting event of the year.

Union des Grands Grus de Bordeaux will hold its 11th annual Le Week-End des Grands Crus on June 4th and 5th this year.  This is an incredible tasting of 120 Bordeaux wines and a chance to chat with the Château owners and winemakers.

But, what makes the event special for me is the chance to have dinner at various Château.  These dinners are always an amazing experience, and one of the hostesses this year is Sophie Schyler Thierry, the charming Director of Communication at Château Kirwan who will show off their completely redesigned cellar.

This really is an amazing experience, you will find the many things to do during the weekend listed on the UGCB website.  It is worth getting a group of friends together and heading to Bordeaux for what will undoubtedly be a beautiful weekend.
