Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux Wine Tasting {Washington, DC}

A little while back I mentioned the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2010 Vintage Tasting that I photographed for Pearson’s at the Willard Intercontinental. It was a stellar event organized by Pearson’s David Choi. Wine makers & chateau owners poured more than 125 of 2010’s best wines from the region.Watermarked UGC Elizabeth Parker_0001 Watermarked UGC Elizabeth Parker_0002

After the tasting for the public wrapped up, we moved up to the grand ballrooms in the Willard for a cocktail reception followed by an amazing dinner. It goes without saying, that things got a little sillier at this point!

Like I could resist photographing the delicious food…

French Ambassador,  François Delattre, addressed the attendees (including the Portuguese and Finnish Ambassadors) about the importance of the wine industry in Bordeaux and the strong relationship between the US and France.

I’m still smiling from his closing remarks, “Vive les Etats-Unis! Vive la France! Vive le Bordeaux!”

Nothing like kicking off your heels and climbing on top of a table for a group photo of some of the best winemakers in the business and foreign dignitaires…

I rarely get my picture taken at events, but when the Ambassador of France (my second home) says “Oh we have to take a picture together!” who am I to decline?
