Nuit du Vin in Rasteau 14th August 2014

This event takes place every year on 14th August. It's officially opened at 17.00 and close down the music and dancig on the big square by midnight.
We participayed only for the first two hours and I can't tell what happened the rest of the evening.

11 producers of Rasteau served their wines from locations spred around in the narrow step streets of the village.
A band walked around the same streets playing drums, saxophones and trompets and other instruments. 

They made a stop by every wine- grower and this way you could taste the wines listening to the music. Smaller bands played different types of music at three places in the upper village,
Downtown around the big square was a traditional market.
A big band was preparing to play their music later in the evenig to a great ball at the square.

When we left the place around 19,00  a lot of people was entering. A big part of them were young people. We could imagine that a big festivity was going to take place.

Shortly after the entrance I met Marlene Fande selling shirts for the Grenache association. I have bought my shirt at the tourist office in Chateauneuf du Pape. The text in the blue window says Chateauneuf du Pape
