Special weekend to picnic in wineries in Provence

GOURMET

Vigneron independent picnicFor the 26 to 27 July, independent wineries throughout PACA and the Var are opening their doors for convivial picnics amongst the vines! This is a great chance to get to know a local winemaker and spend a lovely afternoon with friends in the outdoors. What better way to enjoy the southern French lifestyle? We have a long list of participating wineries...

In the search for a bit more peace and conviviality after several weeks of quarantine, what better way to rekindle relationships between friends and families than during a picnic! Founded four decades ago, the Federation of Independent Winegrowers are once again opening the gates of their vineyards to celebrate their widespread national picnic. For a short but fruitful two days, visitors will be welcomed in about 300 estates, which represent almost all of the private cellars in the PACA-Corsica regions and take advantage of a relaxing experience with views on the beautiful French landscapes in the South.

THE IDEA BEHIND THIS EVENT

Walking through vineyards, between the vines and the estates as the winegrowers share their passion for their profession presents itself as a gratifying way to experience an aspect of French Provençal culture. This illustration is made into reality as guests are encouraged to partake for two days in an escapade where they’ll enjoy the leisure of picnicking and tasting the winegrowers’ productions in a green, refreshing environment.

AN EVENT TAKEN WITH ALL PRECAUTIONS

In full consideration of the coronavirus circumstances affecting the world today, the “Vigneron Indépendant,” or Independent Winegrowers, have decided to host their event with the precautions it requires for people to enjoy their experience undisturbed. Abiding with the French laws, the events will follow the sanitary conditions, taking all measures necessary.

Whether you want to enjoy a pleasant time outdoor in the midst of an authentic scenery or you’re curious and would like to deepen your understanding of oenology as well as taste some wine presented by their winegrowers, the event welcomes you with open arms. Everyone is encouraged to experience this cultural adventure and enjoy a peaceful moment with friends and family.
