The Fascinating Weekend is back from 17 to 20 October 2024. From Alsace to Bordeaux and Champagne, the "Vignobles et Découvertes" regions offer more than 700 festive and unusual wine-related activities: gourmet walks, concerts in the vineyards, dinners with Michelin-starred chefs, rediscovering French heritage, boat or electric scooter rides... A different way to discover France's Wine Routes.

It's a busy weekend for wine lovers in October! Over four days, around sixty Vignobles et Découvertes vineyards in nine French wine regions (Alsace, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Cognac, Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur, Occitanie and Val de Loire) will be offering more than 700 festive, educational, unusual and sporting activities. A great opportunity to discover the local heritage and the history of the vineyards, not forgetting the products of the vine...

Visit the Fascinant Week-End website soon to find out about some of the unusual activities available at the 2023 event near your holiday destination.

700 wine-related activities

In 2022, for the ninth edition of Fascinant Week-End, more than 700 activities were offered in French vineyards. These included a side-car tour of the vineyards of the Pays d'Aix in Provence, a horse-drawn carriage ride through the vineyards of Vendôme in the Loire Valley, an introduction to sparkling wine tasting - in moderation - in Limoux in the Occitanie region, a meeting with a winegrower in Cognac followed by a sensory workshop in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, a night-time walk through the vineyards of the Côte des Bar in Champagne and a festive evening with a DJ in the company of winegrowers in the Rhône Valley
