St Remy de Provence (13 Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence ) hosts its Wine and Crafts Fair (Fête du Vin et de l’Artisanat d’art)
26 – 28 July 2019 – the last weekend in July.
For over 30 years this pretty provençal town (linked to Van Gogh) welcomes its annual wine fair featuring wines from all over France, with New Orleans Jazz and plenty of opportunities to sample wines, local produce and arts & crafts. There is a parade around the town on the Saturday. One of the prettiest towns in Provence, south of Avignon. Easy access from Avignon and Marseille.
St Remy de Provence is in many ways a typical larger Provencal village with a good selection of shops, cafés and restaurants, tree-lined streets and a market square and twice-weekly market.
The local wines are Les Baux de Provence AC and Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.
