Last year in September,
I was invited to help with the 'vendange' (grape harvest) at Château Goubau.
This winery is situated in de 'Côtes de Castillon',
only 10 km. from the famous (and beautiful) town of St. Emillion.
The new owners as of 2005 (Stéphane & Bea Goubau-Goossens) were old acquaintances, and have become good friends ever since.
As a wine-lover I had a blast doing all kinds of geeky wine-stuff at the domain.
Take a look at my 3 albums on Pixagogo:

The reason I bring all those sweet memories up now, is that their first wine, the 2005, has won a golden medal at the recent 'Concours Mondial de Bruxelles' !
I tasted them myself (directly from the barrel and recently the final assemblage from the bottle) and they are astonishing !
Stéphane and Bea are inviting wine enthusiasts to a free tasting.
The place of the venue is Lage Kaart 79, 2930 Brasschaat, Belgium,
this Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th of June, from 11.00h to 18.00h.
You can buy their wines at Van Eccelpoel, in Herentals.
