The 6th Cabanes en Fête (Andernos -France)

The 6th Cabanes en Fête, celebrating the happy marriage between oysters from Arcachon Bay and wines from the Entre-Deux-Mers, will take place on Saturday the 6th of December 2014 at the Andernos-les-Bains oyster port from 10:30 am to 10 pm.

Cabanes en fêtes 2014

The ambitious goal of Cabanes en Fête is to host a major event celebrating oysters and to associate a Bordeaux white wine appellation, Entre-Deux-Mers. Excellent local restaurants were also convinced to prepare tapas made exclusively from seafood.

For the past 5 years, the fête's organisers and 400 participants (in conjunction with the Andernos town hall) have been unstinting in their efforts to make this event a success, whatever the weather – even though it sometimes snows and there was once a major storm! With each passing year, the tapas recipes become more inventive, the oyster farmers are more welcoming in their decorated oyster huts, and the public is more delighted...

In each of the 90 cabanes or huts, oyster farmers will host a winegrower, an artist, and a well-known chef from Southwest France.

This year, oyster farmer Mathias Legras is associated with Château Bonnet, painter Nicole Roumegous, weathervane designer L'Atelierda, cheesemaker Le Fermier Bibens, and other craftsmen and artists in a myriad of different atmospheres, tastings, and flavours.

Come to see us at the Cabane 30-31!

The programme includes live jazz, bandas playing music from Southwest France, sailor's songs, exhibitions of works by local painters, and a procession of traditional boats.

Vignobles André Lurton are once again taking part this year in an event bringing together talented producers of food and wine from the Bordeaux region.
