Although we all hoped for a speedy resolution to the situation, the way things have since evolved sadly confirmed that we made the right decision.
The Association des Grands Jours’ loyal partners, including the Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB), the Regional Council of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, the General Councils of the Côte d’Or, the Saône et Loire, and the Yonne, along with our sponsor, the Crédit Mutuel bank, convened on 12 March, and confirmed their support for a postponement of the event until 2021.
The winegrowers’ management bodies who would have been organizing the 12 tastings were also in agreement with the decision.
The board of directors of the Grands Jours also convened on 31 March to study the possibilities for rescheduling, whilst taking into account the various logistical, financial and scheduling constraints.
The decision was taken to host the next edition of the Grands Jours de Bourgogne on 15-19 March 2021.
This one-year postponement is only possible thanks to the unfailing support of the partners mentioned above. We thank them warmly for their support.
