This innovative construction is inspired by the tendrils of a vine coiling around its trellis. The tendril also evokes the perpetual movement happening in vineyards: changing seasons, vines’ growth cycle, repeating year after year without ever being the same.

This project, design by Emmanuelle Andreani [siz’-ix] architectes, is conceived as an authentic place imbued with discovery, exchange, tradition, and conviviality. Enhancement of Burgundy’s landscape and heritage is made possible by this resolutely contemporary and ambitious architecture.

The “Cité des Climats et des Vins de Bourgogne” is a landscape-building close to the historic city center of Beaune, known for its emblematic centuries-old cellars. The building promotes history, culture, and wine heritage.

Moreover, the project also promotes the recent inscription of the “Climats” of Burgundy winegrowing region on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

With plantation of 400 trees around and more than 1000 vines on the rooftop, this landscape building reconstitutes a “Climat”. In Burgundy, a “Climat” is the name for a specific vineyard site combining vine plots, grape variety, and know-how.

The “Cité des Vins et des Climats de Bourgogne” is a model of eco-sustainable commitment, aiming BiodiverCity label.

It promotes nobles and bio-sourced materials as burgundy stone, wood and poured in place concrete with site materials. Facades are made of wooden structure filled with hemp concrete.

Labels :

  • E+C- level E3C1 (RT2012 - 40% ; Production of renewable energies more than 50%)
  • Biosourced building level 3 ( biosourced material more than 36 kg/m² surface project)

The building promotes history, culture, and wine heritage.

This innovative construction is inspired by the tendrils of a vine coiling around its trellis. The tendril also evokes the perpetual movement happening in vineyards: changing seasons, vines’ growth cycle, repeating year after year without ever being the same.

The exterior ramp, rolling up around the building is a promenade around the landscape proposing fabulous sweeping views on Burgundy.

It is a building which imposes itself by its grace, its elegance but almost also by its discretion. This is the very essence of our wines and the products of our region.
