First off, at just over four decades old and with some 25k participants, this festival is actually one of the oldest and largest wine fests in the world. They’ve got the schedule to match too, with dozens of tastings, seminars and dinners throughout the 9-day long affair.

But, if you’re only going to one thing, we recommend the International Festival Tastings. Known as the heart of the festival, these tastings are your chance to browse the 163 different wineries that are participating this year. With a focus on French producers, you’re going to feel fancier than ever!
