what's on in burgundy 21 june to 19 november 2017

 

Many visitors are attracted to Burgundy by the wine, and its gastronomic reputation. However the region has so much more to offer, and throughout the season there are little publicised events of international importance that attract visitors from far and wide.  In June, the concerts given by David Chan and his musicians at Vougeot bring many of our friends from the US for one of the cultural highlights of the year.  Last year the charity auction in favour of young musicians raised in excess of €800,000, such is the price of a few bottles of rare burgundy wine these days!  The schedule for this years series of concerts can be found below, starting 18 June.
