In April 2010, William D. Friedberg made a donation to the Hospices of a Santenay vineyard covering 60 ares, planted with Pinot Noir. Until recently, he was a wine importer in Boston. He is a lover of Burgundy and of the Hospices de Beaune wine sale, which he has attended and taken part in, over more than 20 years. With his generous deed, he wished to honour and commemorate his wife Christine, who had recently passed away, and who had also been a great lover of Burgundy. The production of the Santenay vineyard which now enriches the patrimony of the Hospices was auctioned for the first time in 2010.
