- the story, told by Guigone de Salins 

 

 

 

Crazy goats, fighting monks, and beautiful maidens, are all part of the rich wine history of France.  Guigone de Salins, a 20 year old aristocratic virgin, married the nouveau riche Iron Chancellor of Burgundy, and went on to found the Hospices de Beaune. The Prince of Conti, who kept the entire production of Domaine Romanée-Conti for his own personal consumption. They tell their own stories, beautifully illustrated by calligraphic artist Els Baekelandt.
