Numerous events punctuate this weekend of festivities: street shows, a folk parade, a gastronomic village and a half-marathon through the streets and vineyards of Beaune. Beaune’s leading wine houses vie with each other in creativity and organize prestigious tastings: Hospice wines, rare vintages, appellations from all over Burgundy and themed or gourmet tastings are all on the program. In Beaune and the Côte Viticole, winegrowers offer tastings of old and recent vintages in their cellars. Gathered in Confréries viticoles, they organize gala dinners and enthrone new ambassadors for Burgundy wines.
