Responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages

The association of Bordeaux Fête le Vin and eat! BRUSSELS, drink! BORDEAUX is not intended to become a wine festival. 
The organizers also prioritize the concept of responsible consumption. For this reason, each wine producers will offer you 5 cl of his best wine. Tasters may also spit out the wine into the numerous spittoons placed by the stalls. You will also be able to rinse your glasses between tastings.

Wine in Moderation

To enjoy the best wine has to offer, here is some advice to prepare your visit: It is almost impossible to taste all the wines offered at a wine exhibition. Prepare your visit by selecting the tasting sessions you want to try. Your Wine Pass is valid throughout the festival, so don’t hesitate to come back and see us ! Never go on an empty stomach. Take breaks during your tastings and sample one of our chefs’ signature dishes. Don't forget to spit out the wine. You can use one of the many spittoons placed on the bar of each pavilion. Water, water and more water. Make sure you keep yourself hydrated during your tastings. Avoid driving. Organise your trip home in advance so that you always get home safely.

And don’t forget:

Drinking wine requires maturity: minors should not drink.

Pregnant women should avoid the consumption of alcoholic drinks.
