The Prize:

Bordeaux is the world’s largest fine wine region, and few people know its highways and byways better than our buyer Tim Sykes. Thanks to our long-standing relationships with some of the region’s world-famous châteaux, we are uniquely able to provide an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour that money just can’t buy.

Three winning members and their guests will join Tim as he visits some of his favourite properties sampling both the latest vintages and some very special older ones too.
