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.
