You cannot spend any time in Burgundy, and not get caught up in the regional passion: winemaking. The Burgundy model is not efficient – far from it. It is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is most definitely not something people do because it is a great way to make a living and have an easy family life… and yet, for the most part, it IS about family. It is about generations of passionate people, who unwrap the onion-like layers of winemaking know-how, and study the weather, and their rows of vines like darling children. It is about enticing the best – the very best – that they can out of each vintage.
Come spend some time here with our great local guides. Settle in beautiful Beaune. Meet the winemakers. Understand the model. Taste, taste, taste. Be impressed with the depth of passion and detail that goes into each and every bottle. And fall, truly, head-over-heels in love with this intriguing, difficult, contrary, and stunningly beautiful winemaking region.
