The Week-End des Grands Amateurs is a wonderful way of unlocking the secrets of the great wines of Bordeaux, meeting the people who make them, and enjoying an eminently pleasurable experience!

Participants will also be able to talk to the people who actually make the wines. This event takes place in Hangar 14, in the centre of Bordeaux, overlooking the Garonne River and the Port de la Lune. Meals (either simple or gastronomic) are available on site.
