    Château du Clos Vougeot

    A castle in the middle of a vineyard.

    Classed as a historical monument since 1949, the castle of Clos Vougeot has had a long and turbulent history.
    The estate belonged to the Cistercian abbey up until the French Revolution. It was founded in the 12th century, and the estate has gradually developed and expanded as its reputation grew under the stewardship of the monks.
    The castle that we see today was added in the 16th century.

    It was sold as a national asset during the Revolution, and a succession of owners followed over the centuries.
    In 1944, Etienne Camuzet granted it to the founders of the Brotherhood of the Knights of Tastevin.
    The castle is now open to members of the public. It is the proud bearer of its part in the history of Burgundy's vineyards, and is only too happy to share it with visitors.
