The Faugères Fête




My good friend Michele Solans who works hard to spread the word about the appellation of Faugères, particularly wants the word spread about the Grand St. Jean, which is the annual Faugères fête.  This year will be the 20th fête and it will be held on Sunday 13th July.  If you have never been to the Grand St. Jean, as it is called, do go,  as it is great fun, and provides a great opportunity to taste lots of different wines, with each vigneron pouring their own wines, so a good opportunity for a chat too.  Entry is 3€ for a tasting glass, and it lasts all day from 10 a.m to 7 p.m.   There is also a lunch and some evening entertainment.  For more details check out the website www.faugeres.com
