We're paying tribute to all the wonderful dads with a taste of Burgundy and Bordeaux. We think fathers will simply love the Burgundy bike trails and teeing off around a chateau. To all the food and wine loving dads we're bringing them some wine experiences from the heart of Bordeaux. Le Pavillon Villemaurine is just a short walk from Saint Emilion and some of the region's best restaurants. To finish it all off, we're toasting dad with a glass of Cognac, because we believe dad deserves the absolute best!
