Côte de Beaune introduction

Burgundy is a triangular region in central France. The area includes Chablis, about three hours south of Paris, to Dijon in the North and Macon to the South. The Côte de Beaune appellation incorporates the southern villages of Cheilly Les Maranges and Santenay to northern village of Pernano Vergelesses. Beaune is the largest village. A sub appellation includes the villages of the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. These villages and vineyards are on the plateau above the Côte de Beaune.

Almost every Saturday morning, starting at 7:30, Beaune’s old city center comes alive with a farmer’s market. Be sure to grab a coffee creme and croissant at one of the patisseries or cafes.
