Every year on the first weekend of September, the wine festival "Fête de la vigne" takes place in Givry.
The winemakers from Givry proudly claim that their red wine is known to the great wine connoisseur König Henry IV (1553-1610) best of all. His frequent visits were not only the wine, but especially his lover Gabrielle d'Estrées, who lived in the nearby castle of Germolles. On the label is therefore often the name of the king in the form "Vin préféré du Roi Henri IV" listed. Every third Saturday of January, the "Confrérie des Chevaliers du Cep Henri IV" commemorates the traditional St.Vincent holiday in honor of the patron saint of French winemakers Vincent of Valencia in which one wine-grower takes possession of the statue of St. Vincent for one year and acts as "guardian of the statue".
