Grands Jours de Bourgogne 2012

From March 19th to 24, here comes a fantastic opportunity to taste the terroirs of Burgundy!

Created in 1992, the “Grands Jours de Bourgogne” takes place every two years in March, bringing together journalists and the trade from all over the world, not in a large, impersonal room, but in the heart of the vineyard. For a whole week they are invited to cover Burgundy for wine-tasting sessions, from Chablis, to the Côte Chalonnaise (for practical reasons the Mâconnais wines will be exhibited in Beaune for a special day), via the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits.
The format seems to please everyone, providing the possibility to discover some 10,000 wines and to meet over 1,000 Burgundy wine-growers.
The 2010 edition confirmed this success with a 10% increase in the number of visitors, 40% of whom were new recruits compared to 2008. This international event welcomed visitors from 40 different countries, including 10 new countries!
