For the 3rd year running, Château Guiraud is hosting The Moon Festival which will take place on Thursday, September 19th 2013 under the full moon, the 15th day of the 8th lunar month as tradition dictates.
The 4 associates* of Château Guiraud, 1st Great Classified Growth in 1855, welcome their Chinese friends, and lovers of its culture, to come and share a moment of togetherness to celebrate the Franco-Chinese relationship.
Bringing together the French art de vivre while tipping their hat to Asia, the evening reflects the spirit of openness and sharing that is dear to Château Guiraud. As well as a gourmet dinner accompanied by vintage wines from the owners’ wineries - Domaine de Chevalier, Château Canon-la-Gaffelière, Château Guiraud -, it is also a festival ! It is centred around the many different activities a lucky draw, a PhotoBooth, a hot-air balloon and watching the moon without forgetting the all-important lighting of Chinese Lanterns by each of the guests.
Until now dedicated to wine professionals, the aim this year is to offer the event to larger numbers of amateurs. In order to attract this target market, a Wine Tour has been especially created in partnership with the Bordeaux Excellence agency. On the programme: discover the city of Bordeaux, learn about wine tasting, visit the vineyards in Médoc, Saint-Emilion and Graves… and for the grand finale? Celebrate the Moon Festival at Château Guiraud in the company of its owners!
