Find your favourite wines from La Nuit du Vin on the appli TWIL. Order them directly from the producer, delivery is free!
Wines, artisans, music, food trucks, wine bar, and conviviality! That’s what you can expect from the 32nd edition of La Nuit du Vin in Rasteau, on Tuesday 14 August 2018 from 5-11pm.
Let yourself be guided! Follow the trail which will lead you through the quaint streets of Rasteau. You will discover the treasures of this lovely Provençal village, encountering and tasting the wines of AOC Rasteau, its natural sweet wines, as well as Côtes-du-Rhône whites and rosés. 18 winegrowers will help you to discover or rediscover the Rasteau appellation, and talk to you about their wines, their terroir, and their profession.
From the heights of the village, you will be able to admire a panoramic view of the vineyards of Rasteau while enjoying a glass of wine in the shade of the plane trees, serenaded by the chant of cicadas.
Food lovers should not miss the local producers’ market to sample the biscuits, macaroons, honey, products made with local chestnuts as well as olive oil, spices, etc. In the village square, decorated for the occasion, the most curious and the fans of wine will be able to learn the ‘art of tasting’ in the wine bar area, and why not try out original pairings with the flavoursome dishes proposed by the Food Trucks, a delicious platter of cold meats and cheeses, or a hearty sandwich… in other words something to please everyone!
As always, there will be lots of entertainment on offer, sometimes in unexpected locations, to ensure that young and less young can relax and have fun.
It will be a colourful and musical evening reflecting everything that Rasteau represents: an ideal of generosity and solidarity, where sharing intense moments and an appetite for life make for a unique place!
A special mention and a big thank you to all the volunteers involved!
