Come and join us to participate in this tour that will take you through the cellars of Joseph Drouhin and the Oenothèque who holds around seventy references including old vintages and large formats.

In addition to its benchmark for wine, it is also a real historical journey that the Drouhin house will offer during the visit.

Indeed, these cellars are part of the oldest of Beaune dating between the 13th and 15th centuries; this is what makes all the magic of this emblematic location within the House of Joseph Drouhin.

This tour relates you its history, its close ties with the region and its many anecdotes.

It ends with a tasting of six wines which will be accompanied by cheeses to illustrate the perfect harmony between each wine and each cheese.

The cheeses were carefully selected by one of the most famous cheese makers of Beaune, the Fromagerie Alain Hess.

This tasting is a real opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the association between these two dominant products of the Burgundy region.
