Now owned by Beaujeu Hospital, the Hospices wine estate evolved slowly over the centuries, thanks to legacies from more than 250 benefactors from 1240 to the present day. The Maison François Martenot intends to return this historic estate to its former glory and promote the four reserves bearing the names of major donors.
