The Hospices of Beaune Cote d’Or were established in 1443 for the poor and leprosy victims, by the hugely rich Nicolas Rolin.

Annually on the 3rd Sunday in November, an auction is held to sell the produce of the 60 hectares of vineyard owned by the Hospices, the proceeds from which go to the upkeep of the superb buildings. The sale lasts an afternoon, and brings in around 4,000,000 euros each year.
