Parade & Blessing of the Wines

What a Fun day!

Alphonse, President of Prosper Montagné Carcassonne and Monique, Carcassonne City Hall have done a fantastic job organizing Saint Vincent day! Hours of Festivities, then over 300 guests were treated to a very special lunch!

 

Each winemaker brought their own bottle of wine! I prepared a GEROBOAM (3 liters contenance: 4 normal bottles…) with a special label for Saint Vincent, Patron Saint of the winemakers.

 

 

With Carcassonne Mayor, Joe and the other winemakers, Raymond and Jean Louis, marched  in the Front Line. Two hours of parade with the musician thru the streets of Carcassonne, several stops then the church ceremony … with the blessing of  the three wines.
