In the 13th century, wealthy Beaujolais organized hospices to help the elderly, the sick and the needy, and the lords regularly donated money there. At the end of the 14th century, hospices were given the first vineyard, the wines of which were later sold at auctions. The first such auction took place on March 26, 1797, resulting in the sale of 30 lots of red wine from the Hospices winery. The funds raised were donated to the needy and sick, who receive help in the hospice to improve their treatment, as well as to accommodate new patients. Despite the fact that the practice of auctions has stopped since 2007, Hospices de Beaujeu continues to sell wines from wineries through direct sales. From each bottle sold, part of the proceeds goes to Beaujolais Hospital, as well as to help Alzheimer’s sufferers. Today, Hospices de Beaujeu wines are sold in France and more than 30 countries.
