We would like to share some solidarity actions and networks with you
This year, we have 2 events in order to help local association: one for the school in Senegal(AKA) , and one for the welcome of people without social link in Colmar (Espoir). The 3rd of december 2010, we will organise an evening (veillée) in the middle of the oak tuns and a nice wood fire with Gérard Leser and Sophie Sow, who will relate about the share and solidarity in Alsace and in Sénégal, in the Christmas spirit. A glass of wine and pastries will wait for you then. The price of 15 euro will be totally given to the association AKA. Starting the 4th of december, (preview at 5 pm) and until the 29th of december, exhibition of art things made per l'atelier Baz'art handled per Marie-Pierre Moyses-Strack. Offer recycle gifts for Christmas !! The benefits are for Espoir. Entrance free.
A happy team gathered together at the and of October to pick the gewurztraminer late-harvest grapes in the domain ofClément Klur. Peole from the area as well as Sweden, specficially our great harvester Sophia Britt. Everyone was ready to help the charity AKA, and found themselves transformed into a real Bacchus. The meal at the end of the harvest was well hydrated to say the least !! We're hoping to do the same next year with some traditional Senegalise dishes such as chicken yassa............. inscriptions are open!!!
Every year a few alsatian wine estates propose an interesting program during the time before christmas. At Vignoble Klur we choose one or 2 local associations each year for benefit actions. The AKA who is helping school in Senegal started the 2010 event with a nice evening around the open fire place and the wellknown story tellers Gérard Leser and Marie Barthélemy welcomed Sophie Perret. Stories about friendship and help, alsatian and african traditions, a lot of cookies and wines....and a very nice time. Sophie promissed us that she will continue the story of her life next year.
