Hospices de Beaune
Press Release

The Hospices Civils de Beaune have confirmed the appointment of Sotheby’s as the new host of their celebrated and historic auction

Paris
The 161st edition of the world’s oldest and most renowned charity wine auction will be held at the Halles de Beaune on November 21st, the third Sunday in November, as per tradition.

The auction, which can include more than 500 lots, is the most famous and oldest charity wine auction in the world (established in 1859). In keeping with its founding values, each year the Hospices de Beaune supports a charity by donating the profits from the sale of a pièce of wine, known as the “President's Pièce”. The proceeds from the sale of the wines are used to maintain the hospital’s heritage and to modernise its equipment and buildings.
