La Saint-Vincent

In the villages

The “Saint-Vincent Tournante” is a big tradition in Burgundy!

In Burgundy each brotherhood has its figure of his holy patron and which is welcomed in a different familly every year.
In 1938 the brotherhood “Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin” brings back this tradition in form of a party, the Saint-Vincent Tournante which takes place every year in a different village from Burgundy.

The highlight from the week-end is the parade of the 100 burgundian brotherhoods which are gathered for this opportunity, which is followed by the mass and the the enthronement of the winegrowers.

 

Fleurs de vigne

The great wine festival of Chablis and the Grand Auxerrois

Every two years Fleurs de Vigne takes over the banks of the Yonne in Auxerre for a day of discovery of the vineyards of Chablis and Grand Auxerrois.

Winegrowers and merchants are there to let you taste their wines from the dozen appellations available in the area of the Yonne, but also to give you an insight into what they do, their passion and their know-how. While waiting for the next Fleurs de Vigne in May 2020 why not come to the Fleurs de Vigne Villages on May 18 and 19, 2019. It is an event in the heart of the villages and will give you the opportunity to discover the wine villages of the region and to meet the winemakers themselves.
