The Wine and Gastronomy Festival of Ribeauvillé is the oldest wine fair in Alsace! With the 90th edition in 2018, slowly, it is getting closer to its centenary … In Ribeauvillé, since the Middle Ages, they have been accustomed to working in the long term. It was time for me to yield to greed without moderation during these three days of celebration.
But I want you to know that you can meet all the actors of this festival (except the producers of Japanese sake who had come for the occasion), winegrowers and restaurant owners, all the year long, in Ribeauvillé or in the surroundings.
And right now, you can note for 2018:
The 90th Festival of Wine and Gastronomy will be held on 20-21-22 July 2018!

Just at the entrance to the historic town, in front of the famous wine-growers’ cooperative (the best in France according to the specialized press), Ribeauvillé has built a magnificent town garden shaded by tall trees with a pretty wooden market suitable for outdoor events. At the other end of the garden, connected to the marquee by a covered gallery, the multipurpose room of the Parc – air-conditioned – is a sumptuous reception area that responds admirably to the demands of tasting of fine wines. Nice! We will feast!
