The Hotel-Dieu, nowadays called Hospices de Beaune should be a definite stop on any Burgundian trip. The Beaune city itself is a cutie, with little gems hidden between all the touristic Cafés and boutique. Any wine book fan would fall in love with the exhaustive selection you can find in the libraries shelves and any wine map fan would fall in love with the multitude of precise and historic map of the region. Of course, I’m an amateur of both and it was heaven. The Hospices de Beaune is the main attraction of the village itself. What started out as a hospital foundation from the Middle Ages, the Hospices de Beaune is now one of France’s most prestigious historic monuments. Besides the historic and colourful architectural appeal of the monument, is a strong implication in the wine industry of the region and it all started with generosity. In 1457, Guillemette Levernier made the first gift of vineyards to the Hospices de Beaune, and this tradition was to continue for five centuries. Today, the wine estate is around 60 hectares, of which 50 are devoted to Pinot Noir and the rest to Chardonnay. Entrusted to 22 winemakers handpicked by its manager, this exceptional vineyard accounts for 85% of premiers crus and Grands crus sold at auction on the third Sunday in November. The sale, today organised by Christie’s auction house, is the most famous wine charity auction in the world. The proceeds of the sale are used to improve the hospital’s equipment and in the conservation of the Hôtel Dieu. The Hospices de Beaune has an iconic status in burgundy as well as a well-developed influence and ownership in the industry. Its symbolism is widespread around the world, its hospital center has spread health, help and the auction is an annual meeting very valued of professionals of the vine and the wine. 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇 For more great stuff follow @joaniemetivier or visit joaniemetivier.com

Pineau des Charentes is a French aperitif. The drink is actually not very well known abroad, but in Charente it plays a rather important role as The little brother of Cognac. There is a legend about Pineau: it was discovered by accident! During the harvest of 1589, a farmer put grape must into a barrel, that he believed was empty. But actually that wasn’t the case. It contained some cognac. A few years later cellar masters found the barrel – and discovered the highly enjoyable blend of juice and Cognac. From this day on, the Charentais people had a new drink: Pineau. A good one can be a delightful drink – very sweet of course, but also mellow and tangy. @chateaumontifaud is the best one I have ever tasted, not kidding! @aoccie 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇 For more great stuff follow @joaniemetivier or visit joaniemetivier.com
