What on in France November 2018

Burgundy – Beaune: 15-17 November Wine Auction. Created in 1443 this charitable hospital is now known as the Hospices de Beaune. Such charitable organisations need endowments to support them and across the years many donors bequeathed vineyards to the Hospices. In 1859 for the first time the wines of the new vintage from these holdings were sold at auction. Now the hospices de Beaune wine auction is a major moment of Burgundian pageantry and the focal point for launching the new vintage. Les Trois Glorieuses – the greatest wine auction in the world is for those who are serious about wine, it’s also a great chance to enjoy tastings as various producers hold an open house for trying the latest vintages. You’ll need to buy tickets for the tastings (you can book online at www.beaune-tourism.com

Nord Pas-de-Calais – Etaples: 9-10 November Festival of the Herring (Fête du Hareng Roi), every year on the banks of the River Canche in the town of Etaples the humble herring is celebrated, cooked however you like it – grilled, marinated or smoked. And it’s accompanied by a crispy chunk of French bread and a robust glass of wine. A huge party, delicious food, and an authentic festival. www.etaples-tourisme.com
