The Hospices de Beaune
From Friday the 13th to Sunday the 15th of November, come join the party in Beaune for the 160th Hospices de Beaune Wine Auction.

Every year, the Hospices de Beaune estate holds its famous and historic auction on the third Sunday of November. For this 160th edition, the Hospices Civils de Beaune and the Château de Chambord are combining their talents to make the sale of the 2020 Pièce des Presidents charity barrel of wine a unique experience.

Firstly, in terms of the choice of wine: Ludivine Griveau, manager of the Hospices de Beaune wine estate has rigorously selected the best vines from the Climat ‘Les Froichots’ on the Clos de la Roche Grand Cru plot (Côte de Nuits). Secondly, in terms of the container, as this wine will be aged in an oak barrel specially made from wood from the Chambord estate. Finally, in terms of where the wine will be aged, as the buyer of the Pièce des Présidents 2020 will have the exceptional opportunity to see the wine matured in the cellars of the Hospices de Beaune itself.All of this should encourage plenty of generous buyers to the sale !


All profits from the auction will be donated to two charities representing hospital workers in France:

  • The Fédération Hospitalière de France (FHF)
  • The Comité de Gestion des Œuvres Sociales des Établissements Hospitaliers Publics (CGOS)

They will ensure the monies raised will be distributed to hospital staff and their families hard hit by the current pandemic.
