Sanary is one of the most beautiful coastal villages and its International Rosé Festival promises to make it even more stylish next weekend.

 

Take a look at some of the images from previous years… 

This year, it is running over 3 days:  10-12th May, 10-18:00hrs each day.  There will be 71 exhibitors, promoting their rosés and 80,000 people are expected at this open-air event. The all-important ‘kit de dégustation’ including a branded wine-glass for tastings will be 10 euros, valid for all three days.

There will be music, guided history walks and trips around the bay on the celebrated multi-coloured pointus. To add to the fun this year will be ‘un parcours arty’ with 12 artists doing live street art.

What an absolutely fabulous way to spend a day!
