On 19 November, the 163rd Hospices de Beaune Wine Auction will be held in Beaune, the most eagerly-awaited event for wine lovers the world over. This annual sale is the world's largest charity wine sale, and a true testament to Burgundy's centuries-old winemaking tradition.
The Hospices de Beaune wine sale raises substantial funds every year. As well as maintaining and preserving the heritage of the Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune and the 60-hectare wine estate, these funds help to modernise the equipment and hospital buildings of the Hospices Civils de Beaune. The 2022 auction was a great success, setting numerous records and raising 29.8 million euros (hammer price) for the hospital.
