|Wine-feast (Saint Vincent Tournante
de Bourgogne) January 30. - 31. 1999
Every Year in a weekend around February 1. one of the app. 30 small villages in the Bourgogne district around Chablis is the host of a wine-feast called Saint Vincent Tournante.
The Year of 1999's feast which everyone had great expectations for, was held in the city of Chablis. - It was marvellous how the whole village was dressed for party, parading, and everyone in the village were participating. - And not the least: Wine was served for free in the streets.
|Notice - all the decorations are made of handmade paperflowers.|

|This Decoration is quite obvious: Chablis Wine is poured all over the World|
|Decorative Field-workers at the front. - And some real field-workers as spectators in the back.|
|And here he is - the Saint Vincent who is the Saint that keeps his hand over the Wine-growers and their crop.|
