See you at the Grands Jours de Bourgogne, from 21-25 March

Every two years, the Grands Jours de Bourgogne brings together wine professionals, market influencers and journalists in the heart of the Bourgogne winegrowing region for an event that is both about business, and about having a passion for wine and a desire to share that passion with others.

From Chablis and the Côte Chalonnaise to the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, with Mâconnais wines included in the Beaune tasting, visitors can explore the Bourgogne winegrowing region from north to south, at 11 different tasting destinations.
This event offers the chance to meet with more than 1,000 winegrowers and to discover some 10,000 wines in just five days.

In 2014, around 2,400 visitors made the trip from 51 different countries to come and explore this unique gathering.

NEW! Two more appellations are being included for the first time in this year’s event:
 
  • Saint‐Romain will be sampled at the Quintessence tasting on the Friday
  • Monthélie will be part of the Quatuor tasting on the Côte de Beaune also on the Friday
