Burgundy to rival Bordeaux with own wine museums

Burgundy and Bordeaux are both well known wine regions in France. Bordeaux has been known globally for centuries due to its proximity to the sea which has made exporting wine that much easier. There is a lot of wine related tourism there. Burgundy is apparently beginning to compete with its own wine museums and other attractions. This is good news for wine lovers because they’ll have more options when they want to experience wine.

Key Takeaways:

  • There will be three sites for the Cités des Vins de Bourgogne: one in Beaune, one in Mâcon; and one in Chablis. They are expected to be ready by 2020. Burgundy’s wine bureau (BIVB) approved the plan by 72% in December 2016.
  • Burgundy officials want to ‘encourage tourists to venture further than the Dijon-Beaune axis, and to explore the wider wine region, to stay for longer, and to return,’ the BIVB said.
  • While the Bordeaux Cité du Vin has information about wines across the world – and it has at least 70 Burgundy wines available to taste – the Cités des Vins de Bourgogne project is specific to Burgundy.
