Le Grand Cercle Des Vins Bordeaux is an organization that brings together the Left Bank and Right Bank of Bordeaux to showcase their en primeur vintage wines and a few already released vintages. ABLE, for the past three years, has worked with Le Grand Cercle to organize the national tour and ensure that it is successful. Our responsibilities include locating an appropriate venue, inviting influential members of the trade and press, organizing a consumer tasting and securing media placements. This year the event was held in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. Over 400 members of the press and trade attended each city and more than 200 consumers. We also partner with media outlets such as The Wine Enthusiast, Local Wine Events, The DailySip by Bottlenotes, to host ticket giveaways and email blasts in exchange for logo placement in our booklets, on our website, and on printed tickets. Each walk-around tasting features more than 40 wineries. Each year Le Grand Cercle also works to involve a charity and hold a silent auction. A percentage of all ticket sales go to the charity and the auction winners receive a magnum of a featured wine.
