Les Piliers Chablisiens
The main mission of Les Piliers Chablisiens, with their colorful costumes, is to promote the wines of Chablis at various festivities, whether local, national or international.
This Bacchic brotherhood was created in 1953 by a notary from Chablis, René Sotty, in order to acknowledge those who uphold the quality of the wines of Chablis.
During a visit to Mont Saint Michel, René Sotty was mesmerized by the great pillars in the crypt which support the entire weight of the abbey. A parallel was drawn, and the Piliers Chablisiens now support the values of the wines of Chablis.
