The Vignobles & Découvertes label: Dedicated to excellence in wine tourism
This label recognizes the very best wine tourism has to offer in Bourgogne. It was created in 2009 and is awarded to those installations that operate a strategy of excellence, and now covers the entire Bourgogne winegrowing region.
Cellars are awarded the Vignobles & Découvertes label after passing the Bourgogne Wine Tourism Quality audit, organized by the BIVB and carried out by an independent specialist organization. This audit checks the national criteria for the Vignobles & Découvertes label, but also monitors the quality of the welcome offered. And make no mistake – in Bourgogne, we take welcoming visitors very seriously!
Cellars with the Vignobles & Découvertes label commit to:
- Offering an authentic and convivial welcome
- Guaranteeing opening hours that are simple and reliable
- Offering optimal conditions for tasting wine
- Guiding consumers towards healthy drinking practices
- Sharing their passion for Bourgogne and its natural, cultural, and gastronomic heritage
- Ensuring an unforgettable visitor experience
The Vignobles & Découvertes cellar guide: Packed with top tips
The guide is organized by wine-producing area and includes information about some 250 cellars that have been hand-picked by the BIVB according to very specific criteria. Visitors can explore them in complete confidence and will find plenty of other interesting activities as they head along one of our Routes des Vins wine trails.
It offers plenty of in-depth details on a variety of themes including the work of the winegrower, the École des Vins de Bourgogne, the Climats, the Cité des Climats et Vins de Bourgogne, the commitments of a responsible industry, and key figures in the world of Bourgogne wines.
Produced in both French and English, a paper version of the guide is available on request from the BIVB or the region’s tourism offices. It includes a fold-out map of the Bourgogne winegrowing region with must-visit sites on the back along with five mini-maps of the region’s Routes des Vins wine trails.
