The Saint-Emilion Jazz Festival can’t take place in the Saint-Emilion village without paying tribute to it’s greatest heritage: wine!
Nile Rodgers, the great American guitarist from Chic, Tommy Lipuma, the famous music producer but also Monty Alexander, a famous Jamaican pianist and Minino Gray, an Argentinian percussionist: all describe the magical relationship between jazz music and Saint-Emilion wine.
Following Dominique Renard, the festival’s president and founder, we discover the Saint-Emilion village and the festival’s concert stages: the Dominicain’s room and the Palais Cardinal’s moat. An opportunity to meet between two concerts: Alain Juppé, mayor of Bordeaux and the Jurade de Saint-Emilion. Proof of that love between wine and jazz, the Jurade’s anthem was composed by Jacky Terrasson, the famous jazz pianist.
