Each year, three vintages of Cru Vacqueyras, red, rosé and white, are the ambassadors of the appellation throughout the festival. These vintages are selected blind by a jury of professionals, then presented to the press and unveiled to the public the day before the launch of the Avignon Festival. During this day, a festival artist is inducted into the Confrérie des Maîtres Vignerons de Vacqueyras.
These three ambassadors of the appellation wear the festival poster on their packaging and are tasted during the highlights with the artists and guests of this great cultural event. They’re available at the Festival Boutique, Place de l’Horloge, at the Halles d’Avignon, and are honoured each year during the Wine Bar evening set up by Inter Rhône.
The winegrowers are true “actors”, knowing how to enhance the unique characteristics of the terroir, whose diversity allows for meticulous and precious blends and enchant the public every year with a new vintage created with their expertise.
