Public/private financing

A detailed provisional budget

The overall cost of the project is provisionally estimated to be €19.5 million for the three sites:

€13.4m for Beaune
€3.9m for Mâcon
€2.2m for Chablis

The provisional budget covers construction, and interior fitting and design.
Around 65% of the financing will come from the public purse. All regional, public and institutional authorities have come together to fully back the Cité des vins et des Climats de Bourgogne project.
The Conseil Régional de Bourgogne Franche-Comté is playing a key role in driving the project, which fits perfectly within the framework of the new regional plan for tourism and leisure development 2017-2022.

Partner public bodies:
The Conseil Régional de Bourgogne Franche-Comté, the Conseil Départemental de la Côte-d’Or, the City of Beaune, the Communauté d’Agglomération Beaune Côte et Sud, the Conseil Départemental de l'Yonne, the Town of Chablis, the Conseil Départemental de Saône et Loire, the City of Mâcon, the Communauté d'agglomération - Mâconnais-Beaujolais Agglomération, the Pays Beaunois, the Pays Sud Bourgogne, and the European Union.

The local wine industry will play a major role in the project.

The BIVB will be providing €3.5 million to the project, including €500,000 from the BIVB in Chablis. The Chablis wines union (FDAC) will be contributing €100,000 to the Cité des Vins in Chablis, and the Maison Mâconnaise des Vins cooperative will be contributing €500,000 to the Cité des Vins in Mâcon.
