Introducing Burgundy

Burgundy is the spiritual heartland of two of France’s raisons d’être – food and wine. The vineyards along the Côte d’Or and the Côte des Nuits are littered with some of the most prestigious names in French wine­making. It’s also renowned for rich, meaty cooking – this is the place to try quintessentially Burgundian dishes such as bœuf bourguignon and escargots (snails). But it’s not just a place to fill your stomach – the historic city of Dijon is famous for its glorious Renaissance architecture and excellent museums, and the city of Beaune is home to the country’s finest medieval hospital.
