Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March 2009

In the heart of the village of Nuits Saint Georges and on the occasion of the Auction of the Hospices de Nuits (from 10.. to 18.00). “The Nuits au Grand Jour” is the first exhibition bringing together all the major growers / winemakers of the Nuits Saint Georges, with the aim of allowing the general public to taste and buy the wines. The syndicat of appellation has convinced its members to organise a comparative tasting of all the “Climats” of Nuits Saint Georges. It provides a unique occasion to access the wines of certain domaines which are often difficult to find and also to discover lesser-known producers.

Truly a “First” for this prestigious village : such an event has never happened before. This event takes place during the weekend of the Auction of Hospices wines, the Chocolate Show and the Half Marathon. The lovers of wine will be able to taste and to buy all the wines shown on the day.

Very much hoping that your readers can come and take part of this first and unique tasting, we look forward to welcoming them very soon in Burgundy.

saint vincent 2008 in saint romain

By billn on January 07, 2008 #diary dates

saint vincent in saint romainThe start of the year in Burgundy heralds, amongst other things, the Burgundy Saint Vincent festivals. Each year there is a touring one which brings together over 80 villages – this year it’s in Saint Romain on the 26th and 27th January.

From the BIVB:

“Founded on the initiative of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin in 1938, the Saint Vincent tour brings together wine-growers from mutual support societies from all over Burgundy. First and foremost it is a wine-growers’ festival, which over the years has attracted a wide audience. The general public is granted access to the tasting cellars on purchase of a glass (10€) and a tasting logbook.”

Saint Romain is a relatively pretty Côte de Beaune village set on the hillside above Monthelie and Auxey, and will also be celebrating their appellation’s sixtieth anniversary. On the Saturday morning their will be a parade through the village at 7.45am and again at 11.15am. A banquet is also organised for the evening. Further information and the opportunity to book for the banquet (130€) can be found at:
