Living France - - What's New -

France is ex­pect­ing its low­est grape har­vest since 1945, but the good news is it’s ex­pected to be ex­cel­lent qual­ity. Bet­ter make the best of what is there then, and cel­e­brate the vendage in style! I would love to be join­ing the 7,000 peo­ple at the port of Banyulssur-Mer on the Mediter­ranean coast for its Fête des Ven­dan­ges tak­ing place from 4-8 Oc­to­ber. Dur­ing the five days of fes­tiv­i­ties there will be a pro­gramme of food and wine pair­ings, walks through the vine­yards and work­shops for young and old – lit­tle ones will love the messy job of squish­ing the grapes with their feet! The high­light for me would be the fi­nal meal – a bar­beque on the beach to the sound of a live brass band! banyuls-sur-mer.com
