First growths masterclass sells out in record time

Tickets for the Bordeaux first growth masterclass at November’s Decanter Fine Wine Encounter have sold out within minutes of going on sale.

All 85 tickets to the masterclass with the directors of the five renowned chateaux – Lafite-Rothschild, Margaux, Latour, Mouton-Rothschild and Haut-Brion – were snapped up shortly after bookings opened at 10am GMT.

Decanter offered tickets on a first-come-first-served basis, over the phone and via the event’s website.

Some tickets are still available for some of the weekend’s other masterclasses – Chateau la Mission Haut-Brion, Brunello di Montalcino: A discovery of Terroir, Vintage Champagne, Opus One: Star of California and Half a Century of Superlative Port – though numbers are strictly limited.

Tickets for both days of the grand tasting are still available.

With today’s surge in interest, event organisers are encouraging guests to secure masterclass tickets early to avoid disappointment.

The Decanter Fine Wine Encounter takes place at the Landmark Hotel in London on 13 & 14 November 2010.
