The Cadets de Bourgogne, polyphonic choir of the Château du Clos de Vougeot, sing the new song "Glorieux soignants / glorious caregivers"
Since 1950, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, founder and organizer of the Tastevinage, has set itself the task of promoting the quality and reputation of Burgundy's Wines.The Tastevinage is a seal of approval, the outcome of painstaking analysis of wines from the entire viticultural region from Chablis to the Crus of Beaujolais, awarded by a jury made up of Burgundy's most competent wine-tasters who assemble at the Château du Clos de Vougeot to select those wines truly representative of their appellation and vintage.
The mediator between men and the gods, rich in symbolism, wine is the bridge linking civilizations, their creeds and religions. Inspired by Evelyne Malnic's book Le Vin et le Sacré (Editions Féret), the exhibition's fourteen panels retrace the part played by wine in different cultures and religions through the ages. A testament to seven centuries of monastic winemaking, the Cistercian vathouse at the Château du Clos de Vougeot provides the ideal venue for this exhibition.
Created in 1938 by the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, Burgundy's itinerant wine festival the Saint-Vincent Tournante remains as popular as ever, being celebrated in a different host village every year. The first Saint-Vincent Tournante poster only appeared in 1971, when the event was held in the village of Rully. It was to be the first in a series of forty-eight, forming the unique collection now on display at the Château du Clos de Vougeot.
