Burgundy, home to the greatest wines in the world but also a region that holds the record for the highest prices ever seen at auctions. With an ever increasing demand, the top Burgundies are becoming something of a rarity and almost impossible to procure. Why is this one place so special? With hundreds of years crafting only two grapes, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Burgundian soil is rich with religion, power, politics and money. Despite the glamour, Burgundy is really all about small family-run operations and humble farmers who consider themselves "guardians of the land".
Join us as we showcase these elusive wines from the some of the most sought after producers of Burgundy. Discover for yourselves the wines made by a woman they call the “grand dame of Burgundy”- Lalou Bize-Leroy, one of the most powerful women in wine, formerly at the helm of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and now Domaine Leroy. Experience six extremely limited wines from the region's superstar domaines such as Méo-Camuzet and Dugat-Py matched to a bespoke five course degustation by Bistro Guillaume Sydney. Champagne to start and a fun blind tasting game to end with prizes to be won! Seats are limited, don't miss out on this special night!
WHEN: 6.30pm | 24 October 2018
WHERE: Bistro Guillaume | 259 George Street, Sydney 2000

Great selection of diverse samples from a single region! It was both surprising and refreshing. Attila made the event too with his stories and anecdotes. He clearly has a wealth of information! Really looking forward to the next one. The Three Kings will be tantalising." Daniel
"Thank you for making tonight not boring!" - Steve
"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.
Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.
Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening." - Sarah
