Wine Weekend 2020 in Burgundy

In January 2020, the Paris Wine Company team headed down to Barbirey-sur-Ouche in the Côte-d'Or for our second annual Wine Weekend. Friends, winemakers, and international buyers came together at Château de Barbirey for a weekend full of tasting, toasting, and getting to know one another.


All of our partner winemakers and distributors were invited to join. For some, the goal of the weekend was to taste each and every one of the over 500 different wines in the Paris Wine Company catalogue. For others, it was to connect with particular buyers or winemakers. And believe it or not, there were even some people who simply came to have a good time.

For Paris Wine company, the objective was clear: to create a community of winemakers and distributors who share our values of great wine, good people, and environmental responsibility.

To each and every person that made it out to Burgundy this January, thank you so much for joining us and helping make the weekend a total success. To those who couldn’t make it, we really hope to see you next year!

Here are some of our favorite memories from the weekend :
