Two proud and independent nations commemorate this month, the fight for independence and freedom. To celebrate Independence Day and the long standing relationship that exists between France and the USA, come and join us for a gourmet dinner in our beautiful, historical cellars. The Drouhin family being present both on the soils of Burgundy and Oregon, they enjoy a close friendship with our American cousins, and this evening is the occasion to celebrate that.

In 1787 Thomas Jefferson, at that time the American Ambassador at the court of Versailles during the reign of Louis the 16th, spent 10 days in Burgundy during the spring, visiting and tasting wines. Having excellent taste, his favourites were Montrachet and Chambertin!

Another famous American, General MacArthur was a friend of Maurice Drouhin, and both of these courageous gentlemen were awarded the highest decoration to be bestowed by the French Government, receiving the Legion d'Honneur. To celebrate the friendship between our two countries, we are organising a gourmet dinner in the former Burgundy Parliament building, which will comprise of a visit of our historical cellars followed by a gala dinner paired with a selection of our emblematic wines including one wine coming from our Oregon winery; Domaine Drouhin Oregon.
