Sweeneys off Licence, Glasnevin,
Saturday 21st May 2011

This Saturday, 21st May, Sweeney's off licence in Glasnevin is hosting a special, complimentary, Château Magnol tasting with a difference.

Renowned worldwide, Château Magnol, a Barton & Guestier vineyard located close to Bordeaux, plays host to the company’s headquarters, covering 25 hectares of Vines in the Haut-Médoc Appellation.

At this very special wine tasting, hosted by Jean de Castelnau, Brand Manager at Barton & Guestier wines in Ireland, customers will have the opportunity to taste Château Magnol Cru Bourgeois vintages from 2000 to 2007, truly allowing customers to experience the wine.

Having grown up in Burgundy where his father was a winemaker, Jean is an expert on all things wine, having learned a thing or two about wine making while working in the winery and the vineyards.

If you are a true wine lover, pop along to Sweeneys this Saturday and taste these outstanding wines – they are sure to tantalise taste buds and leave a lasting impression! For location details please see
