Living France - - DÉCOUVREZ -

For the first time in its long history, the Saint-Vin­cent Tour­nante de Bour­gogne will be cel­e­brated in Irancy in the Aux­er­rois wine re­gion. This fes­ti­val in cel­e­bra­tion of Bur­gundy wine and wine pro­duc­ers is held in a dif­fer­ent com­mune ev­ery year on the last week­end in Jan­uary. As the tra­di­tional start to the fes­ti­val, just be­fore dawn on Satur­day 30 Jan­uary, al­most 80 groups of wine pro­duc­ers, clad in cer­e­mo­nial red robes, will carry stat­ues of Saint-Vin­cent by torch­light down the hill­side and through the vine­yards to­wards Irancy where the cel­e­bra­tions will then con­tinue through­out the week­end. irancy2016.fr
