The Cités des Vins de Bourgogne Has Been Approved

The Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB) has recently voted and approved the Cités des Vins de Bourgogne.  This new wine tourism, cultural and education facility will be built on three sites located in Mâcon, Beaune, and Chablis.

According to Louis-Fabrice Latour, President of the BIVB, it will be “a project that will affect an entire generation”.  Partners include the Association for the Climats of Bourgogne, the tourism industry, and local and regional authorities.

The main site of the Cités des Vins will be located just outside the town of Beaune, which will also include a five-star hotel.

From the Cité des Vins de Bourgogne –“Each Cité des Vins de Bourgogne is a place where people can find out about Bourgogne wines, with shared content and communication tools, each site also acting as a local showcase. The Climats of the Bourgogne winegrowing region, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and a real differentiator for Bourgogne wines, will be presented in each site, in Chablis, Beaune, and Mâcon.”

This project has won  € 17.1 from BIVB and local authorities.

Next steps:

– To define the economic and legal model for each of the Cité des Vins de Bourgogne;

– To select the architects and exhibition designers for the Cités des Vins in Mâcon and Chablis;

– To work with the city of Beaune on integrating the Cité des Vins into the urban project; and

– To design the museographical model of the whole.
