Burgundy – Fine Wine, Fine Cuisine and Golf

If there’s a wine that can be called my favorite, it’s probably made from Pinot Noir grapes, the main component of the red wines of Burgundy.

Being one of France’s best know and expensive wine regions,  Burgundy exudes wealth and all the wonderful art and architecture that goes with having barrels of money to burn. It’s certainly my favorite wine region of France. Walking between the wine towns is a joy. You’ll find the famous vineyards of Burgundy are surprisingly small.

Yes, it’s possible. You can see the Golf Garden over there to the right. It’s near the town of Beaune, which is one of my favorites with lots of good restaurants and wine shops to visit. It’s just the right size to drive to (you’ll need a car to reach the Golf Garden).

Paris to Burgundy is a short trip. Hit Dijon while you’re in the area, or do it as a day trip from your vacation rental.
