The Vigneronnes Meetings: A Friendly And Charitable Event In Montpellier.
Every year, the Esplanade Charles-de-Gaulle in Montpellier transforms into a winegrower village during the Rencontres Vigneronnes. This event, held at the end of November, invites you to taste local wine while supporting a charitable association.
Discovery and sharing around wine
The Vigneronnes Meetings take place every year in Montpellier during a weekend in November. This friendly event, created in 2004, lasts three days.
The celebration is organized in two parts:
• On Friday and Saturday, a winegrower village sets up on the Charles-de-Gaulle esplanade and the producers from the area introduce their wines to the public.
• On Sunday, the participating winegrowers and producers open their doors to the public.
Since its creation, this event also has a charitable dimension. Indeed, all the proceeds from the sale of tasting vouchers are donated to an association such as Téléthon or Sidaction.
In 2011, no less than €17,700 were donated to Sidaction. This year again, the entire proceeds will go towards AIDS research and support for patients.
