These parties were organized by the unified team of the leader of Baralbin, Gaston CHEQ. They are intended to officially celebrate the obtaining of the Champagne appellation for the Aubois winegrowers. They are inspired by the Troyes hosiery festivals in the Aube region.
100 years ago: the origin of the festivities
Initially, Bar-sur-Aube launched hostilities on March 28, 1921. The parade then takes its source in the wine-growing villages nearby. He then continues his journey to reach the city center of Bar-sur-Aube. Each municipality has built one or more tanks and highlights the queen of the village. The winegrowers hold up a sign to represent their village. This procession then continues towards Troyes, the Aube capital. This event took place in the joy and festive good humor of the Champagne winegrowers of the Aube. In order to encourage the creation of tanks, the winegrowers organize a competition to reward the most beautiful tanks.
The winegrowers organize this event but the whole population participates in it. The elected representatives of the territory, the events and musical organizations are obviously present. But also sports, military and religious associations among others.
This celebration was a great success. It brought together more than 15 spectators from all over the Aube. This event made it possible to reaffirm firmly and vigorously the combativeness of the Aube winegrowers. During the parade, the posted signs are there to confirm this.
Above all, they are an opportunity to pay homage to our ancestor winegrowers. We will also highlight the conviviality of our region and the Champagne terroir of barsuraubois.
EARL Champagne Claude Perrard in Rouvres-les-Vignes will celebrate this event no matter what. Champagne traditions are an integral part of our history. We are very involved in making them last over the generations.
Even if the specific conditions linked to the health crisis of covid-19 may restrict this user-friendliness. We will take the necessary steps. Our family will continue to sing during the Champagne festivals in the Aube!
We are also in the process of thinking about the organization of a collective event. We will communicate soon on this one.
