«"Parties aren't only reserved for resorts! Well, okay, Bergerac is no 'techno rave bling bling' type Ibiza but it does not fail! No, here, the festival is genuine and friendly with the Band 'In Vino Veritas', composed of winegrowers and friends of Bergerac wines! With a lively and innovative repertoire, this band is so good they are reserved for winery events, local festivals, and to accompany the wines of Bergerac on events such as the Harvest Festival, the Bordeaux Wine Festival, the Tables of Roxane, Wines of Bergerac Bodega, music festivals (lots of jazz!), appointments at the port with the Tables of the boatmen, and many others.
The spirit of the South is also found in the Grape XV, a rugby club of vintners and friends of Bergerac wines. Sixty growers, winemakers, cellar masters, and friends of Bergerac wines gather around wine and rugby with a twofold objective: sport and conviviality. They proudly wear the colors of the wines of Bergerac through the tournaments they participate in, sometimes as far away as Guiana or Guadeloupe ... They organise every year in June, the Grande Bodega of the Wines of Bergerac, where more than one thousand people come to try and sing.
In addition, the festival "Summer Music in Bergerac" highlights special places and major artists with an amazing lineup. As for the House of Wine, here you can experience superb "Jazz Wednesdays" throughout the summer at 18:00. Finally an event not to be missed: the chapter of the Consulate of the Vine, one of the oldest wine brotherhoods of France. Inspired by the privileges and traditions of the Consulate of 1254, the Brotherhood participates in all events where the wines of Bergerac are on show.
Not to forget the animation that I prefer: lying in the grass, watching the stars and listen to the silence. The charm of Bergerac is also its calm! "
