The Chablis Wine Festival
Organized by the Chablis Tourist Office in partnership with the Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB), La Fête des Vins wine festival is a key event in the year, promoting the discovery and tasting of Chablis appellations with over 50 exhibitors in the center of the village of Chablis. The event includes an exhibition of winegrowing equipment, street entertainment, parades and sacraments by Les Piliers Chablisiens, and a concert on Saturday night.
The first Fête des Vins was organized in 1949, when it served to mark a renaissance for Chablis. Each year, it is held on the fourth weekend of October, and brings together several thousands of visitors including wine lovers, professionals, connoisseurs and newcomers to the world of wine.
