Wine and Food Festival at 40 of Provence’s Vineyards this Summer

The 12th edition of Les Musicales dans les Vignes de Provence starts on June 1 with the first concert at Château la Gordonne in Pierrefeu. Festival organizers want you to enjoy music from around the world while sipping on local wines at one of 40 prestigious vineyards. Whether you are a music lover or a wine enthusiast, these evenings appeal to everyone. The music and wine festival runs from June 1 to September 28, 2024, at vineyards from Nice to Mont Ventoux.

Food and Wine Evenings

While the sun sets on the vines, you can sample some of the vineyard’s wine and nibble on gourmet food. The food and wine portion of the evening starts at 7 pm. After that, it’s time to find a seat and enjoy the music between 8:30 and 10 pm. The concerts all include wine tasting and range in price from 30€ to 50€. Make your reservations by emailing or buying tickets at FNAC. There is also a festival pass, which is valid for three concerts. The music varies throughout the festival, including Cuban, gospel, jazz, classical and blues.

Festival History

The festival organizer, Marie-Jeanne Chauvin, launched the festival in 2013 in the Var with three concerts at three vineyards. Today, 40 wine estates from all over the region—Bandol to les Baux de Provence, Luberon to Mont Ventoux and Nice’s Bellet vineyards—are involved in the program. In 2023, over 20,000 spectators participated in these lovely evenings.
