Fête des Vendanges

From Saturday 31 August to Sunday 1st of September 2024
Opening hours on Saturday between 8.30 pm and 12 am. On Sunday between 9.30 am and 12 pm.

The traditional Fête des vendanges is back to honour the start of the grape harvest in our magnificent region, as summer draws to a quiet close.

Join us for a day of fun and enjoyment as the vineyards come alive to celebrate this crucial time of year. Discover the rich, heady flavours of local wines, sample delicious regional dishes and immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere of the grape harvest.

To add to the folklore atmosphere of the event, we are delighted to welcome the legendary Maxim folk group, Leï Magnoti. Their lively music and traditional dances will take you on a journey to the heart of our cultural heritage.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the art of winemaking and celebrate the richness of our terroir. Whether you're a wine lover, a culture enthusiast or just looking for a day out with the family, the Fête des vendanges is the perfect event for everyone.

So come one, come all, and join in the fun at the Fête des vendanges!
