The Percee Du Vin Jaune Wine Festival Weekend

The Percee du Vin Jaune festival takes place every year on the first weekend in February. The festival celebrates the piercing or tapping of the barrels of the Jura's famous "Yellow Wine" which has spent 6 years and 3 months maturing, to enable the vintage from 6 years ago to be bottled, sold and enjoyed for many, many years to come.



Come and spend the weekend discovering the wines and foods of the Jura region, meet the producers and enjoy the festival, on a specially arranged weekend break, which includes two nights bed and breakfast accommodation in our comfortable B&B, a special Jura Discovery dinner on Friday night, and transport to and from the Percee festival on Saturday.

Programme

Friday evening, arrive and check into your room here in Sens sur Seille. Rooms will be available from 4pm onwards. Freshen up and then at 7pm join us for a special Jura Discovery dinner, with an introduction to different Jura wines from different producers, carefully matched with each course.

Saturday morning, after a copious breakfast, feel free to discover the local market in St Germain du Bois. 11.30am leave for the Percee festival - transport is provided.

6pm return transportation

The evening is free for you to try one of the excellent local restaurants, either here in the village or in the nearby towns. We can make reservations on your behalf - or we can all go out together!

Sunday, depart after yet another copious breakfast.
