Château du Clos de Vougeot
Château du Clos de Vougeot Review
The Château du Clos de Vougeot was constructed in the 12th century by Cistercian monks from neighboring Cîteaux—who were in need of wine for Mass and also wanted to make a diplomatic offering—and completed during the Renaissance. It's best known as the seat of Burgundy's elite company of wine lovers, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, who gather here in November at the start of an annual three-day festival, Les Trois Glorieuses. You can admire the château's cellars, where ceremonies are held, and ogle the huge 13th-century grape presses, marvels of medieval engineering. There are regular photo exhibitions and concerts and an accompanied, 45-minute tour in English on request.
