No one should leave Bordeaux without having spent time in a château. We want to offer you the best experience, a night to remember. Let us present to you Château Lafitte, one of the world’s most splendid vineyards. It is the perfect location for ESSO 41 Networking Dinner.

Château Lafitte, a cru steeped in history. Originally built in 1868 at the Domaine de Lafitte by the ‘Comte Du Val’, this prestigious blond-stone building stands on grounds where fruit trees and vines are grown.

The gorgeous Salle Fleur du Val and the expansive courtyard of the vineyard will be our dining room for the evening. You will not be surprised to know that it is the former horse barn built in the 19th century.

Wait, don’t be dazzled by its history alone yet. Image yourself wandering around the grapes soaking up the early evening sun and returning as the sun sets to socialize the evening away. What a beautiful setting to relax and catch up with your colleagues and friends.

While tasting the delightful menu selected from the famous French cuisine, nothing goes better than a glass of quality wine from the region.

Guess there is not much left to say rather than……bon appétit, santé et à bientôt (good appétit, cheers and see you there)!

Please note that the number of participants is limited.
