A PLACE TO STAY

There’s a hotel in downtown Beaune that makes you feel like you’re living there. Winery owners remodelled this ex-home/stable into a hotel with elegant rooms, breakfast and a warm reception that feels like home.

MIAM! WHERE TO EAT?

A great place to explore wines from Burgundy is this small tasting bar in Paris’s 6th arrondissement. Enjoy by the glass or bottle (take away too). Assiettes of fromage or charcuterie can be enjoyed as a light lunch, dinner or apéritif.
