In celebration of the Hospices de Beaune annual wine auction.

To celebrate the 157th annual Hospices de Beaune auction, come and join us at the Oenotheque for the fourth edition of our "Dinner of the Dukes" during this unique and festive weekend in Beaune, to partake in a gourmet dinner paired with several of our emblematic wines including some from the Drouhin family's reserve cellar. 

The Hospices de Beaune was founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor to the Duke of Burgundy and his beloved wife, Guigone de Salins, with the purpose of offering hospitality to the poor and needy. It was the hospital of Beaune until 1971, and is now a museum where it's possible to admire the flamboyant gothic architecture, and multi-colourd tiled roof. From the very beginning the Hospices benefitted from donations of land, money and vineyards from former patients and wealthy benefactors. 

The Hospices are now the owners of 60 hectares (135 acres) of vineyards, including some of the most sought-after parcels in Burgundy. Every year, on the 3rd Sunday in November, buyers from the world over are reuinited in the Burgundian wine capital to take part in this prestigious event.
