Forget Glastonbury. We can suggest a summer event which is much more sophisticated and combines fine wines with wonderful music.

For two days and two nights – commencing on Saturday 8th July 2017 – the roots, vines and people of Pommard will come alive with the sound of awesome music. The Stage is Set: Clos Marey-Monge, and the entire grounds of the estate, will transform for Rootstock.
