Everything you need to understand the Climats, vineyards of Burgundy region listed on UNESCO World Heritage.
The Maison des Climats in an original exhibition space dedicated to opening up the Climats to a wider public. These now-famous individual plots of vines, named and marked out centuries ago, joined the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2015.
The visit begins with a digital mural with 3D sound design telling the story of the Climats. Visitors can then stroll freely along the nine-meter exhibit representing the vines of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, before accessing a range of content presenting the history, geology, toponymy, and heritage of the Climats.
The Maison des Climats is an invitation to visit the vines of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, and the rich heritage of the local towns and villages. It also provides a fine introduction to any tasting or visit to a vineyard.
This summer, come and explore this fascinating location at Porte Marie de Bourgogne in Beaune. New augmented-reality exhibits will be added soon.
