Festival d’Avignon is not only about spectacles but also the Côtes du Rhône wines. Since thirty years the two have become inseparable and visitors are able to experience the best of both from 5th-27th July.

The professional association Inter-Rhône will take the opportunity to arrange several events to present the best regional wines during the Festival.

The organizers have invited regional wine producers to join the Festival and to share their expertise with the public. After each show or conference, local wines will be offered to the audience, an excellent occasion to share the moment.
