For the 9th year, The Printemps de Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine fair will take place on 7 & 8 April 2018, providing a unique opportunity to taste the wines of 85 estates within the prestigious appellation.
Proud of the success of the 8 previous « Printemps de Châteauneuf-du-Pape » wine fairs, the young local winegrowers – who initiated and still organise the event- are happy to meet the challenge again in 2018.
Over the years, it has become a not-to-be-missed event for all wine lovers, giving the public a unique opportunity to meet the wine producers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, to taste their wines directly on their stands or during themed Master Classes, and to add a few interesting bottles to their wine cellar, whether to keep or to drink straight away!
As each year, a gourmet market will sell products stamped by Slow Food or grown/bred/manufactured, etc. in a « Site Remarquable du Goût » (Remarkable Site of Taste). This means that visitors will be able to buy a bottle at the fair, a warm dish, a few oysters or cheeses at one of the markets stalls and enjoy a relaxed picnic right in the centre of the village.
In parallel to the fair, throughout the weekend, themed wine tastings and master classes will be held on the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (by reservation only, places are limited)
