Dijon, the capital of good taste and the art of living

On May 6th 2022, the doors to the International Cité of Gastronomy and Wine will open to the public. Just one kilometre from the historic centre of Dijon and the route des grands crus. The 6 hectares of the former Hôtel-Dieu which has been restored by a daring architectural renovation, will become the place for an out-of-the-ordinary experience between expositions; the Ferrary Paris Cooking School, the BIVB Burgundy Wine School, the food shops, the Gourmet Bookshop, the Experiential Cuisine of the Gastronomic Village, 9 cinema halls in Pathé, the Village start-up by CA, its engines Vitagora and the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Foodtech…

Bon appétit and enjoy a good drink!

All visitors will be able to gather and mingle at the Cité to cultivate their skills, taste, practice cooking and oenology, take part in masterclasses and conferences, make the most of the boutiques, restaurants and a 4-star hotel, or attend film screenings. A wide range of itineraries are available to choose from for visitors in the spirit of maintaining an exceptional project that has been enriched by the strengthening of its original goal : to tell a story and bring to life the values o the “gastronomic meal of the French” and the “Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne” recognized by UNESCO.
