La Confrérie du Raisin d’Or
(The Brotherhood of the Golden Grape)

A Chapter Meeting is a public and festive event at which members of the confraternities meet and present their local produce.
Our Chapter Meeting is held every third Sunday in July. We welcome approximately 45 confraternities from all over France and, occasionally, abroad.
A) A Chapter Meeting begins with a traditional Church mass.
B) It continues with a parade through the village and the Wine Fair.
C) Then we proceed with the inauguration ceremonies. This is the moment we acknowledge and celebrate individuals' contributions to culture, arts, heritage, or gastronomy. The inauguration of confreres to the Chapters also takes place.
D) The Chapter Meeting concludes with a convivial meal at which Confreres discover the wine and gastronomy of Bergerac.
