Promising young artists are placed alongside the key names during the festival, they are helped by various initiatives such as Le Fonds Instrumental (instruments and funds for young musicians) and the “Young Talents” scholarship.
This festival creates intimate bonds between musical excellence and the great wines of Burgundy, thus each concert is preceded by a wine tasting made possible by the many partners.
All concerts and tastings are hosted in places that are symbolically and historically linked to the wine of Burgundy, and so the prestigious settings of the Château du Clos Vougeot, the Château de Meursault and the Grande Halle de Beaune (town center) are fervent, long-time partners. The Festival being eager to expand the musical offer is currently settling into new locations.
