I don't post a lot of weekday events and I don't post a lot of events that are more than $25, but this is an incredible opportunity and something you should all attend
It has been over a decade since the Union des Grand Crus de Bordeaux (UGC) has been in Washington DC. We are happy to announce that we will be hosting this one of a kind Grand Bordeaux Tasting.
From Bordeaux connoisseurs to wine lovers we have a very exclusive and exciting evening with over 100 of the top Grand Crus Chateaux of Bordeaux. This will be a rare opportunity to talk to the winemakers and owners of the top Grand Crus Chateaux, while being one of the first to taste the highly acclaimed 2010 vintage. The event date is Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 5-8pm and it will be held at the Willard Intercontinental Grand Ballroom
I have had a number of opportunities to try the 2010 vintage and it is as good as all the hype. This is a chance to try the 2010 vintage from more than 100 of the best producers in Bordeaux.
