The Clos de Vougeot is one of the largest vineyards in Burgundy. The Château de Clos de Vougeot is a small château built to house the wine presses needed by the Cistercian monks to make wine for their religious ceremonies. The château is now the seat of Burgundy’s most sophisticated wine lovers, the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin. In Epineuil is the Petit Quincy Abbey, built in 1212 by the Cistercian order. In this magnificent setting, great Epineuil and Chablis wines are produced.
