The St. Vincent day is a tradition that has been perpetuated for 406 years by the Brotherhood of St. Vincent. It was founded in 1612 to live human and Christian values around the protector Saint Vincent, faithful to a spirit of friendship, brotherhood and faith. That year, an altar was raised in the church to its glory by the generosity of the parishioners.
In the same spirit of solidarity, the Brotherhood continues to open itself to other communities today but also to other cultures such as Mexico, which Champlitte is in regular contact with. With the help of Albert Demard in the 20th century, the commitment to heritage, to the environment and to solidarity stays alive.
This festival is also dedicated to the whole wine sector. It represents an opportunity to thank every one who make a living for their terroirs.
