Saint-Vincent Tournante Wine Festival

Poster: Saint-Vincent Tournante wine festival


At the end of January the winegrowers gather in Burgundy to thank Saint Vincent for the past harvest
and to ask him in a large procession for his protection for the next harvest.
The festival, whose roots go back to the Middle Ages, takes place every year in a different village.

In 2020 it will be Gevrey-Chambertin, a 3000-Selen community in the department of Côte-d’Or. Traditionally, the event begins with the morning procession of the 90 winemaking companies of Saint Vincent, which ends with a mass in the village church.


Afterwards the oldest winegrowers of the Brotherhood will be honoured on stage - and the cellars of the local winegrowers will be opened for guided tours and tastings. Each year the focus is on a different application.

There will be tastings of various grape juices for children and Burgundy delicacies for gourmets.
And at the Parc de la Mairie various bands will play live for the guests - some years there will be around 40,000 visitors.
