- Hospices de Beaune Wines The Hospice de Beaune auction, established in 1851, is the World’s oldest wine auction. The wines sold come from exclusive plots of land bequeathed to the Hospice who in turn look after the vinification of the grapes. Since 1999 James Thomson has been buying barrels of these exclusive wines and has made a selection available in his restaurants. After purchasing the barrels the elevage has been looked after by the historic house of Albert Bichot who are one of the great names in Burgundy.
