    This is the name of the Brotherhood formed in 1934 for the promotion of Burgundy wine and other cultural pleasures of the Region. It is a posh organization with over 10,000 members (by election) world-wide. It has been successful in its goals and philanthropies. It holds elaborate festivals. The most important are in the grand room on the ground floor of the chateau (see our Introduction). During an induction, elaborate costumes are worn and at meetings all members have a tastevin dangling around their necks (see our Buying Tip). The Brotherhood has a 100 year lease of the chateau for their festivities . (The pictures here are lifted from the slide show given during the tour of the Clos). One festivity coincides with the annual wine auction at Beaune for the Hotel Dieu.
