Before Beaujolais: Millévin

Before Beaujolais: Millévin

Millévin, the festival of primeur wines, is Thursday the 21st in Avignon. “On the Place de l’Horloge (6 to 9 pm; 3€ per person for a glass and a breathalyzer), local wine co-ops and winemakers will be offerings tastes and bottles for sale, of both new wines and other Côtes du Rhône vintages. Chalets will be serving and selling regional products including chacuterie, oysters, sweets and more. There will be wine quizzes, a photo competition, a “Nez du Vin” test that pits wine student against the public and of course, a lot of people hanging around sipping and shmoozing.”
