MORE ON BIKE TO CARE:
In 2022, Pierre-Henry Gagey of Louis Jadot company and his Burgundian friends created an event called “Bike to Care” to raise funds for associations in the restaurant and hospitality sectors in general that care for people in difficulty, encourage new vocations and support the training of upcoming talent. During its first edition, in Burgundy, 250,000 euros were raised for charities around the world. A delegation of Bordeaux estates (Haut-Bailly, Giscours and Lynch-Bages) took part in the first edition. They are committed to taking up the torch to organize this sporting and charitable challenge in Bordeaux this year as well. Médoc, Graves and Sauternes will be the focus of a course of almost 200 km through the Bordeaux countryside.
