Every summer Tignes hosts the annual Fete du Vin de France - Festival of the Wines of France.
The main street, usually home to the market on Thursdays and Sundays, will be populated with wine tasting tents as far as the eye can see. Well... at least as far as the end of the road anyway.
Vineyards from all over France will be represented offering everything from big reds to pink Champagne and everything in between. This is a great chance to try a variety of wines and to stock up your wine cellar. The festival runs for 5 days in the centre of Le Lac.
