We are extremely pleased to continue our collaboration with the certification label Vignobles & Découvertes (Vineyards and Discoveries) under the new destination «Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne». This distinction attests to the quality of our offer in terms of wine tourism, and its consistency with the expectations of our visitors.
Since 2009, this label has been awarded to those involved in the wine sector and offer relevant products on the vineyard theme, including activities such as accommodation, catering, discovery of wineries or local know-how, visits to cultural sites, among others.
For Patriarche, the purpose is twofold:
- On the one hand, to highlight the richness of our territory and improve the readability of its history for those who discover our cellars;
- On the other hand, to bring to light the work we do throughout the year at the service of wine tourism, history and wine heritage enthusiasts.
The Vignobles & Découvertes label is awarded by Atout France, the state operator responsible for promoting France as an international tourist destination. As such, it also supports the development of the French tourism products.
This approach is perfectly aligned with our vision. As evidenced by our status as Major Patron of the Association of Burgundy Climats, the Maison Patriarche Père et Fils makes a point of honor to respect the authenticity of the Burgundian terroir while highlighting the specificities that make Burgundy wines so unique.
Our Maison enjoys an international reputation, acquired over the centuries thanks to our tradition, the quality of the wines we nurture, and by the old age of our cellars, witnesses of a secular history. Every year, many visitors from all continents discover the region's prestigious winemaking past, as well as the secrets that rank our wines among the most remarkable in the world.
For all these reasons, we are very proud to reaffirm our affiliation to the «Vignobles & Découvertes» label, through which we strengthen our commitments to increase the attractiveness of our region.
