The vineyards

Together with the Clos de la Chainette, Auxerre has the oldest documented vineyard in France (12th century)! A 4.2ha testimony of the Benedictine monks of the abbey of Saint-Germain.
Auxerre, surrounded by the vineyards of Chirty and Irancy, is an ideal location to discover the great wines of Burgundy.
Temple of the Crémant du Bourgogne, the Bailly cellars occupy very old quarries of 4 ha to be visited (manufacturing process, sculptures...) 9kms from Auxerre.
From March to October, we can organise quad biking trips, a more fun and sporty version to discover the vineyards of Chablis, Chitry and Irancy off the beaten track!
 We can also organise private wine tastings at the Relais des Saints Pères, tailored to your needs (rare wines, organic...).
