Hospices de Beaune (Tour organised for IGS2009, 17th September, Preregistration required, max: 42 people, first-come, first-serve)
The Hôtel-Dieu was founded on 4 August 1443, when Burgundy was ruled by Duke Philip the Good (Philippe le Bon). The Hundred Years War had recently been brought to a close by the signing of the Treaty of Arras in 1435. Massacres, however, continued with marauding bands still roaming the countryside, pillaging and destroying, provoking misery and famine. Nicolas Rolin, the Duke’s Chancellor, and his wife Guigone de Salins, reacted by deciding to create a hospital and refuge for the poor.
Over the centuries, the hospital radiated outwards, grouping with similar establishments in Pommard, Nolay, Meursault (the Hospices de la Charité). It became a community of carers, known as the “Hospices de Beaune”. Many donations –farms, property, woods, works of art and of course vineyards- were made to it. The institution is unique in its historical, philanthropic, and wine-producing heritage, and has become intimately linked with the economic and cultural life of Burgundy.
Abbaye de Fontenay (Tour organised for IGS2009, 17th September, Preregistration required, max: 42 people, first-come, first-serve)
