Attend an exclusive wine auction in Beaune
An auction in its 158th year
Established in 1443, the Hospices de Beaune was initially established as a hospital for the poor. Due to a number of generous donors, the hospice was given ownership over a number of vineyards, encompassing around 61 hectares of land. It is this land that has ensured the organizations successful foray into the world of viticulture- this domain has become one of the most prestigious in Burgundy and these vineyards produce a number of highly sought after wines!
An important auction
Every year, the Hospice hosts a wine auction weekend to raise funds for their charitable organization. Taking place over one weekend in November, this fundraising effort includes a number of festivities, tastings, a dinner, and the main event: the actual wine auction! Organized by legendary auction house ‘Christies’ this auction offers collectors the opportunity to discover exceptional wines, whilst also supporting a good cause!
Experience the 158th edition of the Hospices de Beaune wine sale and get your hands on incredible wines- this year more than 49 cuvées will be offered. Enjoy exclusive access to this event, with a tour of the building beforehand!
At 1889 Travel France, we will be happy to customize the experience according to your guests's wishes!
