The events kick off on April 26, at 8.30 pm, as the Grande Bretagne welcomes wine expert Thomas Perrin in an event titled, “Wine Legends of the World – Chateau de Beaucastel; Decoding a Myth“.
The Perrin family owns the legendary Chateau de Beaucastel since 1909 and Thomas Perrin will take guests on a journey to rare wine tastes and aromas, while revealing the secrets of the “Chateauneuf du Pape” terroir. Furthermore, award-winning chef Asterios Koustoudis will prepare a fine menu to accompany the flavors of the rare wines.
