SF Bordeaux Events - UGC Tasting & Fête du Bordeaux Dinner - 12/06/2017 - Northern California Events

Coming up are two of the most exciting tasting events of the year. First up, is our annual Fête du Bordeaux which will be held at One Market Restaurant in San Francisco. This is a unique opportunity to taste through multiple vintages from the illustrious estates of Langoa and Léoville-Barton, Lynch-Bages, and La Conseillante. In attendance at this four-course meal and wine tasting, will be representatives from each of the Chateau. Offering their own insights on the wines, there is no better (or enjoyable) way to expand your wine knowledge.

Also in December, is the annual Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux, which will focus on the spectacular 2015 vintage. As one of the most anticipated events of the year, the UGC tasting offers an opportunity to taste the wines from Bordeaux’s top Chateaux. Rarely, if ever, will you encounter so many coveted bottlings under one roof. There’s been much excitement surrounding the 2015 vintage with Antonio Galloni noting that they are: “exactly the wines Bordeaux excels in; delicious pedigreed Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot-based red that offer superb quality and value.” This is a can’t miss event for any true wine lover.

Tickets for both events are sure to sell out quickly, so don’t delay in securing your spot today. Scroll below for more details:
