Saturday and Sunday will offer an all-day tasting programme and sale of wines from the commune's wineries.
7. Meet the Einsteins of tomorrow
Science Slam offers young scientists a platform to explain their research projects in short, digestible 10-minute talks. The audience will then get to vote afterwards. The goal is to explain scientific work in an understandable, entertaining and concise way. Come and support these youngsters and, who knows, maybe they are presenting the next big discovery of tomorrow!
