The harvest festival, which took place last Sunday at Château Lazgrezette in Caillac, at Alain-Dominique Perrin’s place, was the exceptional presence of Amerian singer Tina Turner. Philippe Laville was also one of the hundred guests.
The hundred guests and celebrities who attended Sunday’s harvest festival at Chateau Lazgrezette in Caillac, had the pleasure of crossing paths with American star Tina Turner. No, they weren’t dreaming! The singer came especially to the party from the United States. Long-time friend of Alain-Dominique Perrin, the host, Tina Turner had also been one of the international surprise guests who were seen at the inauguration of one of the first ‘Printemps de Cahors’, a photo festival which immortalized the city, before moving to Toulouse. After that, for the harvest festival of 2003, Lazgrezette again welcomed the super star. That year, the actor Jean Reno was another one of the special guests.
Sunday, Tina Turner came back to Caillac, to the chateau in the middle of the winefields, where exceptional wines are produced from the special grapes. The other renowned guest, singer Philippe Laville, is also a regular at the festival.
The festival takes place every year in the gardens of Lazgrezette. The moment is important, for it is the result of a year’s work, the occasion for the owner and the wine maker to invite a select number of his best private costumers from France and the rest of Europe, and having them enjoy wine from some of the best years. The atmosphere resembles that of a rural festival, with entertainment, wine tasting, culminating in a lunch created to make the best wines of the house taste their best.
The 120 people who participated in the bacchanal feasts, treasure these special moments. Alain-Dominque Perrin greeted his guests, while rejoicing in ‘their precious and steadfast support’, and expressing his affection for Lazgrazette and its wines, further illustrated by his plans for a revolutionary wine store house in Landiech.
