THE TRUCK VERSION OF WINE: A FRENCH-STYLE ROAD-TRIP
In the food-truck mode, the winemakers of Saint Emilion will come your way throughout the year 2016. Find them in the four corners of the Hexagon: from the Grand Southwest to Alsace, via Britanny and the Nord-Pas-de-Calais. On each of the 15-20 stages,
a sommelier will be waiting for you to taste 16 wines from the four appellations: Saint-Emilion, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Lussac-Saint-Emilion andPuisseguin-Saint-Émilion. Come and discover this Citroën HY vintage truck, fully converted and painted in the colors of Saint-Emilion wines!
BETWEEN SHARING AND CONVIVIALITY
The “Saint-Emilion” truck, how does it work? The sommelier will welcome you onto this “cellar-room”, a place of conviviality and closeness, for trainings and tasting initiations. For the concepts of exchange, pleasure and passing-on are inherent to the appellations. And who better to talk about these wines,than the winemakers themselves?
They will be present at each stage to introduce you to the expertise of the winemakers of Saint-Emilion. Local wine shops are no exception. Fully associated with the Saint-Emilion Wine Trip, they can put on the colors of Saint-Emilion or offer training sessions for tasting on the truck. Drop stops, slates, posters, aprons and corkscrews … all will be available to them.
