The grandiose and solemn Chapître Exceptionnel of the Confrérie du Vin de Cahors where 11 American sommeliers were dubbed knights

Almost every wine region in France has its own “wine brotherhood”, confrérie de vin. Cahors, in the South-West is no different. The Confreries is mainly a fun thing that is used as an excuse to throw parties and to make friends with people.

At the 2014 edition of the Cahors Malbec Days there was a delegation of sommeliers from the USA who attended the week-long wine tasting event. The eleven sommeliers also had the honour of being admitted into the Brotherhood of Cahors wines, “enthroned” in the Confrérie du Vin de Cahors, on Monday 16 June 2014, at its extraordinary Chapitre Exceptionnel “Malbec Days”.

You can see some spectacular pictures from the festivities as well as a video on BKWine Magazine“Intronisation” in the Cahors Brotherhood, Cahors Malbec Days 2014.
