DescriptionMany novelties this year: the attending of Crozes-Hermitage and Corbière.
In 1992, from the MJC volleyball section a team is getting formed. After participating to the creation of an oenology lesson, they decide to share their knowledge about wine by organizing the first wine exhibition in Seyssuel where wine-growers exposed. The first edition was unbalanced: too many northern Côtes du Rhône, many wine-growers coming to present the same designated wine.
Soon, the exhibitors selection is done naturally and wine-growers criteria got more refined:
- Never two wine-growers presenting the same cru
- Representation of great wine-making French region
- Production quality
- Only producers
- Small cultivation and young farmers as much as possible
With the exhibition, we offer:
A meeting between consumers and producers; the possibility to buy after a tasting cession in the best conditions and a presentation by the producer not to buy blindly; wine discovery all over French regions; a friendly moment.
Otherwise, the city found again its wine-making activities that were reduced because of the phylloxera. “Côteaux de Seyssuel » has been replant in Syrah and Viognier, by wine-growers of « Northern Côtes du Rhône » (Gaillard, Cuilleron, Villard). They have been joint by other wine-growers who replanted on Vienne’s hillsides, Seyssuel and Chasse sur Rhône. They joint an association named VITIS VIENA with the shared concern of realizing great wines on these small soils.
We have developed, around the wine, many activities: the exhibition, tasting lessons, themed tasting sessions are getting in the city new wine-growing vocation.
The entrance price is 5€ (possibility to reduce the rate for groups, free invitation for sponsors). A free INAO glass given for tasting.
Possibility to lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Do not hesitate in making a reservation.
For groups, we can organize the tasting and the lunch.
OpeningFrom Saturday 25 to Sunday 26 November 2017. Dates to be confirmed.
