Great family get-togethers require the kind of place, which is big enough to bring together relatives, but also cosy enough for friends and family to feel at ease. Which of us has not dreamt of being lord of the manor for a day and holding a reception without having to worry about details? The ancestral stones of the Château of the Clos de Vougeot have witnessed weddings, birthdays and christenings in the warm spirit of the Burgundy tradition.
