In the villages of Burgundy dining is as much an art form as winemaking. From the Grand Cru vineyards of Nuit-St-Georges in the north of the Côte d’Or to Chassagne-Montrachet, Levernois, and the small hamlet of Santenay in the south, dining opportunities abound.

Expect these restaurants to serve exceptional local wines. The name Côte d’Or harkens to the area’s “slopes of gold” as the Burgundian vines turn color after harvest. The A6 road from Paris to Lyon passes through Burgundy. Known as Autoroute du Soleil or Motorway of the Sun, the A6 is the main route to the south of France.
