Gala dinner on wednesday the 6th of July*
Much more than a Gala dinner ! : After half an hour in bus transportation, we'll discover a wonderfull and medieval location in the middleof the « Garrigues » nature : the « Chateau bas d'Aumelas » and its winery.
We'll start by winery visiting and Chateau history. Next, an apperitif and wine degustation will be served within the « cour d'honneur » outside the château at sunset with a concert of music mixing gipsy jazz and classical music... probably under the song of the cicadas.
A dinner with typical south-France meals will be served within the château rooms and on the terrasse under (we hope ) a wondefull starry sky.
We'll be back for midnight at Montpellier city center.
* : Gala dinner payment is all included : transportation from/to SupAgro-INRA campus, winery and château visits, wine tasting, appetizers, dinner, music concert, etc.
