Do You Tweet? Win tickets to the Burgundy vs Bordeaux Debate

On Wednesday 10th December, Intelligence Squared is convening a debate between Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. These two wine writing greats will battle it out to decide whether the wines of the Bordeaux or Burgundy are superior, with Michel Roux Jr on hand to chair the proceedings. To help the audience at London's Emmanuel Centre make an informed decision, each spectator will be given a glass of wine from both regions.

Honest Grapes is delighted to announce that we will be supplying the audience wines for this fantastic event (our enthusiasm for the evening is best evidenced by the fact that several members of staff had actually already purchased tickets before we were asked to take part).
We would like to see as many of our Friends (and as much of the Premier Crew) there as possible. Tickets are available from Intelligence Squared, but, if you’re a Tweeter, Honest Grapes is also giving a pair of tickets away.
