Discover the testimonies of the patrons who support the Cité des Climats et vins de Bourgogne.
LAURENT DELAUNAY - PROPRIÉTAIRE DE LA MAISON EDOUARD DELAUNAY
"In just a few years, Edouard Delaunay has made a remarkable comeback in the very closed circle of great Bourgogne houses. As we did for the inscription of the Climats de Bourgogne on the UNESCO World Heritage List, it seemed natural to me to contribute by actively supporting the Cité des Climats et vins de Bourgogne as a Grand Founder, thus marking our attachment and gratitude to the unique terroirs, history and culture that have made Burgundy what we are.
"Through their 2,000 years of history, the Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne have taught us that the transmission of knowledge is one of the keys to understanding great wines. Today, we are proud to be able to support the Cité des Climats et vins de Bourgogne and to have the opportunity to become one of the links in this chain of transmission that aims to protect and perpetuate the tradition and heritage of Bourgogne wines."
HILLEBRAND GORI FRANCE
"Passion, care and respect for the products we store and transport are at the heart of our values. The Cité des Climats et Vins de Bourgogne will allow us to pass on this passion for the history, culture and heritage of winegrowing Bourgogne, which is why we are proud to be involved with it."
DOMAINE Marquis d'Angerville
"My support for this patronage campaign is an extension of my previous commitment as president of the Association des Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne, which now needs a quality interpretation center."
MAISON ALBERT BICHOT
"To be part of the Great Founders of the Cité is an honor for our us, a tribute to Bourgogne and its Climats which deserve it because of their history and their exceptional character."
BOUCHARD PÈRE & FILS
"The Maison Bouchard Père & Fils is proud to support this great project. It will offer to the inhabitants of Bourgogne and to the lovers of the French wine inheritance a unique center of interpretation on the viticulture of soil, which makes the proper genius of Bourgogne."
BOISSET - La Famille des Grands Vins
"In the continuity of the inscription of the Climats on the UNESCO world heritage list, the new Cité des Climats et vins de Bourgogne will contribute to reinforce the image and the notoriety of Bourgogne, its wines and its know-how. We must perpetuate our cultural and living heritage by making it understood and known to current and future generations."
MAISON LOUIS JADOT - PIERRE HENRY-GAGEY
"The Cité is the major project of the 2020's in the wake of the Climats being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is in keeping with both the respect of history and Bourgogne tradition in an idea of permanent research for progress of a living Bourgogne region turned towards the future.
CRÉDIT AGRICOLE CHAMPAGNE BOURGOGNE & CRÉDIT AGRICOLE CENTRE-EST
"Crédit Agricole is present alongside the profession through numerous wine events. It supports the development of the region and the actors who make the richness of the territory and the reputation of its wines. It is with great pride that it is today the Great Patron of the Cité des Climats et vins de Bourgogne. A project that makes sense and echoes the values the company defends and shares historically."
MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN
"Burgundy is a land of welcome. All of these cités, from Chablis to Mâcon, will showcase the extraordinary diversity of our appellations, but also accompany the expert or neophyte public in understanding our Climats."
