Even though the thermometer is far from seasonal norms, summer is well and truly here. As proof, last Thursday, the three strokes of the sound tastings were struck by the tourist office, which launched its summer animation in collaboration with the winegrowers of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Every Thursday in July, from 7 pm to 11:30 pm, the curious are invited to go to Parc Gasparin to appreciate the famous wines offered for tasting. The principle is simple: upon entering the park, visitors acquire a collector’s screen-printed glass (which they keep when they leave) as well as two tasting tickets, for a total of €7 (€6 for a refill of 2 tasting tickets). Once this is done, all they have to do is visit the winegrowers present, who will be happy to introduce them to the wines produced in their cellars.

A family meeting

And to accompany these delicious beverages, five food trucks offering sweet and savory dishes, depending on taste, are also present throughout the evenings, which end with music and a free concert.

For this first Thursday of opening, Thursday July 4, the wines offered were those of Château Mongin and the Domaine du Prieuré des Papes, the musical entertainment was provided by the Globalson Vinyl Bar and the night concert by Jordin Bertran of the Swing Band. With the good weather helping, this opening of the festivities was greatly appreciated by an audience that grew in number over the hours, who came with their families to relax under the pleasant shade of this park, a true green lung of the city center.

Next meeting on Thursday July 11 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., with 5 domains.
