Benoît de Charette, brand new President of the Cité des vins et des Climats de Bourgogne announced, on Tuesday 16 March, the start dates for the works on the 3 sites for the Cité des vins de et des Climats de Bourgogne.

After several years of conception and preparation, works are now accelerating. The first stones will be laid, one after the other, during the first half of the 2021. These key moments mark the start of work, but they only come after a great deal of effort in organizing calls for tender for the construction aspect and the scenography, carried out in parallel.

The three Cités will offer different feels, both in terms of their geographical situation, their size, and their architectural approach and style. But they all share the same aim: To promote the culture of winegrowing in Bourgogne with as many people as possible, through a wide range of offers and services focusing on the world of vines and wine.

  •  Work on the three sites will be staggered over the first half of 2021

The first stones will be laid, one after the other, during the first half of the year, along with partner authorities.

– The Cité in Beaune started the process with construction beginning with the first stone laid, in conjunction with the city of Beaune and the Rougeot group, on 12 March.
– The Cité in Mâcon will lay its first stone on 29 March, with work starting at the end of April.
– The Cité in Chablis has just been granted its construction permit with work due to start this summer.

These key moments mark the start of work, but they only come after a great deal of effort in organizing calls for tender for the construction aspect and the scenography, carried out in parallel.

The choice of contractors and service providers who will help with the construction and the creation of the visitor experience will soon be unveiled. More than 60 different businesses will be involved in the creation of these three Cités.

  •  Three buildings, each with a unique architectural signature

The three Cités offer different feels, both in terms of their geographical situation, their size, and their architectural approach and style. But they all share the same aim: To promote the culture of winegrowing in Bourgogne with as many people as possible, through a wide range of offers and services focusing on the world of vines and wine.

Beaune: The Rougeot group and architect Emmanuelle Andréani, from Lyon-based SIZ’-IX Architectes, will be driving the 3,600m2 construction of the Cité in Beaune. A contemporary gem, the building takes its inspiration from a vine tendril winding its way around a post, and will stand at 24 meters high, offering views across the vines from its panoramic terrace.

Chablis: In Chablis, architect Claude Correia, from the Atelier Correia Architectes & Associés in Saulieu, in the heart of the Morvan, will create an 800m2 link between past and future with an extension of the 12th century Petit Pontigny cellar, an historic monument where monks once aged their wines.

Mâcon: In Mâcon, local architect Antoine Récio from RBC Architecture in partnership with ACL Associés, was selected to design an extension to the existing BIVB building. This innovative construction of 1,600m2 takes its inspiration from the ammonite fossils found in the region’s clay-limestone soils, and the screw of a wine press rising up 17m to offer views over the Saône.
