Nuits St Georges Wine Festival

The Burgundy wine village of Nuits St Georges (21 Côte d’Or, BFC) holds its autumn wine fair Fête du Vin Bourru on the weekend of 21-22 October 2017 , the Nuits St Georges Wine Festival

Nuits St Georges Wine Festival posterThe festival of the vin bourru is one of the major events of Nuits-Saint-Georges, with the Wine Sale of the Hospices de Nuits in March. Organised in the prestigious setting of the Maison de Nuits-Saint-Georges, every year it welcomes more than 5,000 visitors, local or passing through, often returning year after year, coming to taste the vin bourru of the year (the grape juice that is pressed on the spot), to discover the wines and products of the whole of France. Every year, some guests are accorded special attention and come and present their regions and their products. Under the patronage of «Bourgogne Magazine”, visitors can benefit from the 5th local fair of producers of Burgundy selected according to quality criteria.

Nuits St Georges is at the heart of some of the best Burgundy vineyards, so this should be a good opportunity to taste some classy, if young, wines and some of the famed Burgundy cuisine! There is a charge of €4.50, but you get an engraved tasting glass as a memento.
