Every 3rd Sunday in November, Beaune pulls out all the stops! On the occasion of the remarkable Hospices de Beaune wine auction, join lovers and connoisseurs of fine wines for the sacred and traditional Burgundy rendezvous. In addition to the city’s many festivities and events, enjoy the prestigious tastings organized by the winegrowers of the wine villages. Let your taste buds dance under the subtle aromas of Hospices wines and rare vintages that accompany local specialties.
During the auctions, you can support charitable impulses in favor of the Hospices Civils de Beaune. Take part in the auction yourself via the Maison Albert Bichot. Each year, this famous wine house offers you the chance to bid on the finest wines from the Hospices de Beaune. Then, on Sunday afternoon, attend the auction broadcast on a giant screen on Place de La Halle, just a few steps from the auction room. Personalities from the world of wine come to bid to win one or more barrels, from the 60 ha of the domain of the Hospices de Beaune.
More than just a getaway to Beaune, the wine sale is the chance to experience an authentic weekend. Mark your calendars!
