Château Lagrange Dinner

2 May 2019 7:30 pm

Event Details

Bordeaux, France

Château Lagrange is a third growth estate in the Saint-Julien appellation in Bordeaux.  After its acquisition by Suntory, the Japanese wine and spirits company, in 1983, the estate was reborn and was then able to fulfil its desires for excellence in winemaking.  The quest to produce the best Saint-Julien style wines result in refinement, elegance, and expressiveness. Aside from their eponymous grand vin, they also produce Les Fiefs de Lagrange, more recently Le Haut-Médoc de Lagrange, and are one of the rare producers of a white Bordeaux Les Arums de Lagrange.  Please join us for a grand dinner with Lagrange at Trinity College.

Members will be allowed two tickets – including a Member’s Guest ticket if you would like to bring a non-member friend.  Non-members can book one ticket each. Please also indicate any dietary restrictions when you book.
