From the Australian based team; Wine Machine comes a brand new festival concept for Europe. Machine Du Vin will set up home in a medieval chateau in the South of France, for a three-day spectacular, of Music, Food, wine and the Arts.
Having attracted nearly 100,000 patrons to vineyards across Australia over two successful seasons, Australian juggernaut Wine Machine has now set its sights on the most famous wine nation in the world – France. Machine du Vin will take place on the grounds of an ancient medieval chateau in romantic, rural Southern France this summer. This luxe, hand-curated experience is poised to attract European residents, Australian adventurers, and bon viveurs alike.
Machine du Vin’s carefully curated line-up, unsurpassable location and experiential offerings immediately establish the event as one of the most attractive boutique festival experiences on offer on the European party circuit this 2018 summer.
Say organisers: “Machine du Vin is a dream we’ve had for a very long time. Our Wine Machine events have taken place in some of the most breathtaking Australian wine regions, but nothing can compare to the absolute majesty of the South of France. We really have found the most magnificent spot in the world and can’t wait to go on a three-day French adventure with you come August.”
Machine Du Vin’s town centre, the medieval village of Camon, epitomizes the post-card perfect fairy tale image of French charm – and will truly capture the heart. Its ensemble of stone buildings are built in the style of a 15th Century royal fortress. As you seek out its traditional boulangeries, you’ll tread in the footsteps of monks, soaking up the peaceful reverence of this former Abbey.
Rising from the perfectly manicured vineyards of Camon are the turrets of the L’Abbaye-Chateau de Camon – the jewel in Camon’s crown – a Disney-like castle, that stands proud and beautiful – a symbol of 1,000 years of French history. The fully-restored castle’s rich interiors are of the extravagant Belle Epoque style, replete with painted ceilings, drapes and 18th Century furnishings. The magnificence of this estate must truly be seen to be believed – and will the form a most extraordinary backdrop for the weekend’s festivities.
