Welcome Reception

34th EAED Spring Meeting in Bordeaux, France

The Welcome Reception will take place at the picturesque Château Giscours, where a bus transfer will bring you to right after the end of the scientific program on Thursday evening.

Château Giscours, classified growth of the Margaux appellation, is located along the mythical “Route des Châteaux” in the Médoc. Since 1995, the Dutch Albada Jelgersma family is running the estate. The ambition of the new generation perfectly matches with the heritage of winemakers who turned Giscours into a worldwide renowned classified growth. The château has a majestic setting, it appears as an ideal venue for our Welcome Reception; you will be sure to find your favourite corner in the different areas.
