This is incredible news! The Union des Grand Crus de Bordeaux (UGCB) is returning to the DC area this January!
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
The various Chateau have visited DC for events, such as the annual Heart's Delight fundraiser, but they have not all been in town together for 10 years.
This event is almost entirely due to the tireless efforts of David Choi, Proprieter of Pearson's Wine & Spirits. Mr. Choi has spent years putting this together and now his effort has come to fruition.
More than 100 members of the UGCB will be pouring their 2010 vintage.
Remember, the tasting will take place at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel's Grand Ballroom on January 24th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.
You can purchase tickets, including discounted valet passes, on the Pearon's Wine & Spirits website! I promise you, this will be one of the best wine events in DC this year!
