Fascinant Weekend

Have you got plans the weekend of 14th – 17th October? If you do, you may want to reconsider as France goes wine crazy with the nationwide Fascinant Weekend 2021.

Now into its 8th edition, the second to be held in the Roussillon, this annual wine extravaganza sees over 400 events taking place in locations across the country, recognised for their contribution to wine tourism.

Created in 2009 by Atout France, the “Vignobles et Découvertes” label is granted for 3 years to outstanding wine tourism destinations: accommodation, restaurants, cellar visits, wine tastings, museums, events.

Those featured in the Fascinant Week-end program are therefore a guarantee of quality.

The P-O obviously has a strong wine producing reputation and many of the local communes are taking part in this year’s festival.

You can:

  • follow a guided vineyard tour on foot and/or bike;
  • visit the cellars and sample the wares;
  • enjoy live concerts and musical apéritifs;
  • take part in sensory workshops and learn to match wines with food;
  • take a tasting trip on the train rouge;
  • test your detective skills with wine-orientated treasure hunts and escape games;
  • sample local, terroir products, picnics and gourmet meals;
  • and much, much more…!

You can even get in the Halloween spirit with a nocturnal visit to the Caves Byrrh and wrap the whole weekend off with the Dionysiades Festival!
