Wine industry members and the specialist media will meet up from the 3 to the 6 of April 2023 for the Découvertes en Vallée du Rhône exhibition.
During the show, a master class will be dedicated to Gigondas and its Terroir on Thursday.
It’s a perfect family event in the great Gigondas tradition : exploring the more remote parts of Gigondas on mountain bikes, stopping to nibble, sip and listen to the winemakers making the wine come to life. And settling in for a long lunch in a domain of Gigondas.
This annual event is designed to allow wines from the vintage currently being matured to be tasted, in the same conditions as journalists, critics and sommeliers, who will be welcomed by the appellation. It also offers attending winegrowers, negociants, brokers and winemakers the opportunity to discuss the vintage at their ease in a relaxed atmosphere.
Over a dinner hosted on the village square, winegrowers and their guests will share their most treasured wines, not only showcasing the Gigondas appellation but also wines from around the world. Everyone brings their own little gems to share with the other guests.
The Gigondas appellation is celebrating its wines and gourmet foods in a summer evening event on the village square. The menu includes local, site-expressive produce orchestrated by talented chefs and artisans with a passion for wine. This is where winegrowers eager to reach out and lovers of good food meet. All participants have to do is sit back and enjoy the resultant food and wine pairings, from starter to pudding!

Twelve notes in three stages allow you to discover the broad array of aromas in the appellation’s wines. One area is specifically designed to stimulate children’s sense of smell. In the terroir and biodiversity area, an incredible animated film on the geological formation of the Dentelles de Montmirail reveals another aspect of our mountain range…
