Bordeaux Weekend


On the last weekend in May we will be hosting a fabulous weekend dedicated to the world`s most famous wine region – Bordeaux! Guided by international renown food & wine expert and seasoned speaker Roland Birr, we will embark on a journey discovering the traditional food & wine delights, learn more about the history & present of this region as well as the unique organisation and classification of Bordeaux!

From Friday to Sunday we will be tasting a whole variety of traditional local foods, which may sometimes sound a bit rustic or adventurous, but are absolutely uniquely delicious! Here a small selection of menu items:

  •  fish soup,croutons, garlic rouille, grated cheese
  • foie gras, apple tart, blue cheese and Sauternes
  • local tomato salad with cornichons, onions & chillies 
  • duck breast in a pepper sauce
  • sweetbreads in a cognac, mushroom & cream sauce
  • entrecôte with a red wine & bone marrow sauce
  • roasted leg of young lamb with herbs
  • grilled pigeons with peas
  • mustard coated stuffed rabbit 

Of course all of this good food will be paired with a large range of wines – from the big names and and well renown labels to some delightful discoveries of surprisingly unknown less renown wines – it will be a true feast for all #winelovers and #lifelovers!!!
