The Domaine of the Hospices de Beaune is a ‘winemaking hospital’ and 5 centuries of vineyards legacies.It all started in 1457 when Jean Guillotte le Verrier made a donation of vines to the “Hotel Dieu” (hospital). Making a donation of vines was a way for families / patients to thank the institution. The wines of the Hospices de Beaune (refered as “Cuvee”) often bear the name of the family who donated the plots of vines. Today the estate is covering 60 hectares of which 85% are 1ier Cru and Grand Cru. All the Domaine des Hospices wines are sold during an auction on the 3rd week-end of November every year.
