Burgundy Syndicate Trip: Hospices de Beaune

Burgundy Syndicate Trip: Hospices de Beaune

Event starts November 10, 2023
1:30 pm - 11:59 pm

Mark your calendars for this year’s trip to Burgundy on Friday 10th – Sunday 12th November in anticipation for The Hospices de Beaune auction.


Taking part in the Hospices de Beaune Hospices de Nuits Saint-Georges, or owning bottles, is a dream of many a collector. Whilst the opportunity to have a slice of Burgundian history is thrilling enough, we are offering two trips to Burgundy in celebration these annual auctions.

Previous Syndicate Members rank this at the very top of their most exciting fine wine experiences with tastings and experiences organised especially for those with shares, such as our upcoming trips out to Burgundy, and most exciting of all is the superb wine you receive at the end of the journey.

The trip will delight with an itinerary jam packed with local vineyard visits and will include gastronomy in some of our favourite spots across Burgundy with winemakers in attendance. Last years activities have been included to give you an idea below. Most of the itinerary has been confirmed; a few additional minor details will be shared shortly.
