THOMERY




Thomery

Thomery graced the Kings residing in Fontainebleau, as well as the Parisians gourmets, with Chasselas grapes available throughout the year. In order to do so, 300km of vine walls were built on the hillsides, all facing the perfect orientation.
Such distinctive architecture has shaped the Thomery landscape with these “mineral scarifications”.
Local Associations are now reviving a unique technique known as “à rafle verte”, which was invented at the Renaissance Period, which allowed the grapes, once they were picked, to keep fresh through the winter !

On the banks of the River Seine, close to the Château de la Rivière, a beautiful private estate, and the 12th century Church Saint-Amand, restored in 2006 and designated a “Listed Historic Monument”, was where the King used to come and bathe. Previously known as “Les Bains du Roi”, the “Port d’Effondré” is also where the precious grapes were loaded for their destination. Francis 1st came to Fontainebleau and enjoyed this quiet bend of the River Seine. The site has preserved all the majesty of the period. Art and particularly painting has completed this epicurean setting, thanks to Rosa Bonheur, the famous animal painter who came and set up her studio at the top of the village.

Guided tours will show you round Thomery and its unexpected history.




 

Le port d'effondré

Built in the reign of Philippe Auguste for the transport of sandstone from Fontainebleau, the port was, later on, used for the transport of grapes to Paris.

Thomery guided tour

The banks of the Seine hide unsuspected wealth. Thus, Thomery will surprise you for the cultivation of chasselas and its original preservation method. Accompanied by a local guide who is passionate about his city, you will discover some of the 350 km of the "longs sillons" trail, the grape chambers, the Solomon garden and the glasshouses. The visit of the Rosa Bonheur studio, intact since the disappearance of the animal sculptor-painter, will complete a day classified between art and heritage

The Salomon Garden Glasshouses

Cette serre est la dernière de l'ensemble que formaient les établissements de viticulture Salomon et fils à Thomery. Ces serres étaient destinées à produire du raisin précoce et permettait également la réalisation de sélections et d'expérimentations pratiquées par cette famille de viticulteurs qui fit beaucoup pour le renom et la modernisation de cette culture.

This glasshouse is the last of all that formed the viticulture establishments "Salomon and son" in Thomery. These glasshouses were intended to produce early grapes and also allowed the selection and experiments practiced by this family of winemakers who did much for the renown and the modernization of this culture.

Serres Salomon - Thomery

Eglise Saint-Amand (12th – 15th – 18th century)

Situated in the heart of the village, the Church is dedicated to Saint-Amand, the Bishop who evangelized the district around this bend of the River Seine circa 630. It was designated a “Listed Historic Monument” in 1948 and restored in 2006.

The site of” the Longs Sillons”, vine-growing

“Listed Historic Monument”, Thomery was famous for its table grapes, grown on a climbing vine set up on 300km of walls or so, built as early as 1730. These grapes were renowned for their methods of production and preservation alike, invented in Thomery.

    Jazz et Franc-Maçonnerie
    Une histoire occultée

    Le jazz, a fêté son centenaire en 2017. Il a été inventé aux Etats-Unis à la fin du XIXe siècle et a révolutionné le monde musical. Puisant dans ses racines africaines et son métissage avec la culture européenne, il reste toujours vivant et même si les grands médias le dédaignent, le nombre d ses adeptes ne faiblit pas.
    Il est joué partout sur la planète, dans les clubs les plus petits comme dans les plus grands festivals. Patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO en 2011, il est célébré tous les 30 avril dans les grandes capitales du monde. Pourtant, on ignore qu'une grande partie de ses créateurs, si ce n'est la majorité, ont été membres de la franc-maçonnerie américaine noire Prince-Hall, construite sur une société marquée par des siècles d'esclavage et de ségrégation.

    Animée par Yves Rodde-Migdal.
