De Cep En Verre
An intergenerational celebration
In the historic centre of the town of Nolay, 18 km from Beaune, the Tourism Agency, in partnership with the Syndicat de Défense des Hautes Côtes , organises a fun, educational, friendly activity based around the vines, wine and a live show. The 19th edition of DE CEP EN VERRE event will take place in Nolay on 5 and 6 august 2023.
The High Points:
Around forty craftsmen invite you to discover and share their passion: ceramist, basket maker, ironworker, wood turner… Their show their talent and know-how through demonstrations, a real living heritage. 8 winemakers from the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune honour the 60-tears-old appellation Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes, but that’s not all. They also invite you to discover their secrets through commented tastings. The opening ceremony is followed by a tour of honour by artisans and the sharing of a glass of friendship offered by the municipality of Nolay. Giant wooden games for the whole family, learning workshop for children, delight all ages from 7 to 77. In addition to this programme, on Sunday from 9:00am to 2:00pm, there’s a 7 km pedestrain rally, suitable for the whole family. A walk that takes you into the countryside, between woodland and vineyards, with 6 tasting stages and a meal enjoyed out in a vineyard. Equipped with a questionnaire, participants in this rally answer the riddles of the vineyards and are rewarded at the awards ceremony at the end of the route on the square of Nolay Church.
Here's a video of what it looks like.
