Description *: The "Elégance des Volnay" association, which brings together numerous producers, has been organising a day of promotion for the Volnay appellation since 2005 with the support of the Organisation de Défense et de Gestion (ODG) and the Bureau Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bourgogne (BIVB).

In 2023 Chantal Lafarge, the new president of the association, will welcome a female personality from the world of wine or an enlightened wine lover who will chair the day and become an ambassador for the wines of Volnay.
