Open to all

From keen amateur to enlightened connoisseur, the Cité des Climats et vins de Bourgogne invites you to discover all the riches of the famous Bourgogne wine region, its heritage, and will offer fun, sensory and educational experiences.

Introduction to Bourgogne wines

Localisation of the Cites des vins in Bourgogne

Each site provides an introduction to Bourgogne wines, and covers the entire wine region from three emblematic cities:

  • Chablis
  • Beaune
  • Mâcon

Each Cité will value its territory, its wines, its identity and will be an invitation to visit the vineyard.

Beaune, the capital of the winegrowing region, is the biggest of the three sites and will embody the history, the know-how and the heritage of the whole Bourgogne region.

Chablis highlights the fabulous richness of the vineyards of northern Bourgogne: Chablis, Grand Auxerrois and Châtillonnais… while Mâcon focuses on the vineyards of Mâconnais, Côte Chalonnaise and Côtes du Couchois.
