Chateauneuf-du-Pape Wine Festival

Veraison wine festival at Chateauneuf-du-Pape. As this is the most prestigious wine of the southern Rhone valley, then it should be well worth a visit.

It is a ”traditional” medieval  festival with joustings, horse riding, jugglers, fire eaters, sword fights and a medieval style carnival centred around a winemakers “village” (village vigneron)

“Veraison” refers to the point in grape development when the process changes from growth to maturing – the berries change colour – and this point is usually a good early indicator of the date of the harvest.
