Châteaux & vineyards, Burgundy-style
Côte de Beaune also has a collection of beautiful wine châteaux: Aloxe Corton, Pommard, Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet, Santenay. Often surrounded by their vineyards, they offer a different face of the wine world, historical heritage, visits to the winery, the cellars, sometimes a restaurant, a table d’hôte and rooms in the château where you can extend this special experience.
