More details in today's La Nouvelle République.
The 11th stage of this year's Tour de France from Vatan to Saint-Fargeau will pass through a number of the Loire's Central Vineyards – Reuilly, Quincy, Menetou, Sancerre and Pouilly. It will go through the village of Montigny at the extreme west of AC Sancerre. The people of Montigny obviously intend to enjoy the occasion and are planning a 'une journée de convivialité' from 11am.
I'm sure other wine villages will be planning events for 15th July – I will be happy to post details if organisers will send them.
Hopefully Mark Cavendish will still be in the Green Jersey, having won the sprint at Issoudun the day before, and will go on to pick up another victory in Saint-Fargeau.
