Once again, Prague Castle is going to be the venue for the 16th annual Audience Grand Cru Classe, the event that hosts the most prestigious wineries from Bordeaux and their extraordinary wines. The second week of February has become the traditional time when visitors have the unique opportunity to taste about 40 Bordeaux wines - this year the featured vintage will be 2017.
The tastings take place in the elegant environment of Rothmayer Hall within Prague Castle. All chateaux are spoken for by their official representatives, who introduce their wines during three tastings, which are held on Thursday 2:30pm-6pm, Friday 10am-1:30pm, and 2:30-6pm.
One of the major highlights of the event is the festive banquet held in the magnificent Spanish Hall of Prague Castle. This feast traditionally includes the official representatives of all the presented chateaux, as well as important people and personalities from Czech society.
Guests can also look forward to tasting three older vintages of the Grand Cru Classé category from Magnum bottles, as well as many other interesting wines, including Champagne and Sauternes. Every guest at the banquet will receive a unique bottle of Grand vin de Audience 2017.
