60th Anniversary of The Club: -

The 49 Wine and Spirit Club of Scotland

Visit to Bordeaux; 2019



Your Committee proposes that Club Members make an anniversary trip to Bordeaux in June 2019. An exploratory visit has been made and venues and events are already booked!


Arrangements have been made as under, but of course Members are welcome to arrive before these happen or stay after they have happened, or both. These are simply the ones where Club Members shall come together, in special surroundings, to enjoy each-others company.


Please make your own travel and hotel arrangements.  Ryanair go from Edinburgh to Bordeaux. KLM go via Schiphol from Glasgow. Buses go directly from the airport to the centre. There are many hotels in central Bordeaux, ranging from 5*to 2*.


Venue capacities are limited to a maximum of 40 so, it’s a first come first served basis.


Itinerary: -


Wednesday 5th June 2019 – 12 noon – Lunch - Automobile Club du Sud-Ouest


Thursday 6th June 2019 – 1 p.m. – two-hour boat trip on the River Garonne – with wine (partners welcome for a small fee)

Friday 7th June 2019 – 10 a.m. - bus trip to Saint-Emilion for a sightseeing trip, then onward at  12.30 p.m. to Château La Croizille for a tour and then drinks on the balcony followed by lunch.


We estimate that the total cost of these events will be around £250 per head, per member.


If you want to come along, please make a note of interest to Treasurer Richard Barbour asap.
