The site is now open since May 11th and welcomes the public with strict sanitary measures to protect the health of visitors. As a reminder, the Château du Clos de Vougeot no longer produces wine, but it undeniably remains the symbol of nearly a millennium of Burgundy history. It was in the 12th century that the monks of the abbey of Cîteaux cultivated the vines there. Transformed into a castle during the Renaissance, this place with a long history lies proudly in the middle of the vineyards and the public comes to see the vat room and its four huge wine presses; the cellar, a 12th century building built to house some 2000 pieces of wine and the dormitory of the lay brothers which reveals a splendid wooden structure of the 14th century.
