The Bourgogne wine event at the heart of their terroirs
International meetings. Trade only.
The Grands Jours de Bourgogne : an international trade fair in the heart of the vineyards
Created in 1992, the Grands Jours de Bourgogne takes place every two years in March. It unites trade representatives and journalists from across the globe not in a huge impersonal room, but in the heart of the vineyard.
For a whole week you are invited to cover Bourgogne for 14 wine-tasting sessions: Chablis and Grand Auxerrois vineyards on Monday, Côte de Nuits on Tuesday, Mâconnais on Wednesday, Côte Chalonnaise on Thursday and Côte de Beaune on Friday.
This system seems to please everyone and provides the possibility of discovering over 10,000 wines and meeting some 1,000 wine-growers.
