A word from the Mayor

Vendanges en fête is the result of a desire.

That of the winegrowers and the city to put at the heart of the festival the promotion of quality wines produced on the Cru Banyuls-Collioure.

Without denying the friendly and festive spirit that has animated the town on the second weekend of October for more than 20 years now, it seemed obvious to reinforce the winegrowers’ part of the festival.

Thus, for the first year, a winegrower’s village will be set up on the central beach from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 October. Composed of a dozen “casots”, this village will bring together the majority of the estates and cooperative wineries of the Cru. There, you will be able to appreciate the diversity and the quality of the wines presented by the winemakers who produce them.

A Palais des Terroirs, on Thursday, October 7, at the Bartissol hall is organized jointly by the Syndicat des Vignobles de la Côte Vermeille and the Toques Blanches du Roussillon. The best chefs of the department will propose a unique marriage between their cuisine and the wines of the region.

Take part in our, your, party by becoming an actor by buying a glass!

So don’t hesitate, come to Banyuls-sur-Mer from October 6 to 10 during Vendanges en Fête, you’ll only want to… Come back in 2022!”

Jean-Michel Solé, Mayor of Banyuls-sur-Mer and President of the EPIC Office of Tourism
