Getting to know our châteaux…
The Union des Grands Crus will be glad to help you discover the great wines of Bordeaux and the diversity of our terroirs in a convivial atmosphere, as well as offering you the possibility of meeting the people who make the wine. Events organised by the Union are pleasurable occasions for sharing and learning about the secrets of wine. We warmly invite you to take part in them.
Le Weekend des Grands Crus
For the past 13 years, the Union des Grands Crus has organised an outstanding event bringing together wine lovers from around the world: The Weekend des Grands Crus. This event features several high points, including the tasting of wines from over 120 Grands Crus in the heart of the city of Bordeaux, on the banks of the Garonne. This is a tremendous opportunity for meeting and discussing with château owners and their oenologists, as well as attending dinners in châteaux and visiting the wine country.
In 2018, the Weekend des Grands Crus will take place in the framework of the Bordeaux Wine Festival, on the 16th and 17th of June, a weekend when the Tall Ships Regatta will also occur. You can find the full programme and book tickets in the Shop.
