A Huge New Center in Dijon Promises French Food and Wine Heaven

Take a look at a historic site in Dijon.

Join forces with industry heavyweights: The Epicure Group will build a 3,000-bottle winetasting vault. 

While Ferrandi Paris will open a culinary school campus. So, what? It's a one-stop shop for gourmands of all levels. 

To open on May 6, the Cité internationale de la gastronomie et du vin has taken a decade and 250 million euros (US$274 million) to build. 

It is a 16-acre complex that is transforming Dijon, both as a tourist destination .

 As an eco-neighborhood, with residential units, including social housing, surrounding a park.

“We are at kilometre 0 for the UNESCO-listed Burgundy wine route,” Mayor François Rebsamen declared last winter during an exclusive preview of the site.
