Beaune, located south of Dijon, is the unofficial capital of the Côte d'Or (a department in the eastern part of France). This thriving town's reason for existing is wine: making it, tasting it, selling it, but most of all, drinking it. Consequently Beaune is one of the best places in all of France for wine tasting. The jewel of Beaune's old city is the magnificent Hôtel-Dieu, an exquisite medieval charity hospital.
Dijon is perhaps best known for its mustard (named after the town), which is still produced locally. It is also one of the most beautiful cities in France, as its historic buildings and byways were not heavily damaged by bombing in World War Two and are largely intact.
Fixin is located in the Côte de Nuits region between Dijon and Gevrey-Chambertin. In 1860 it merged with the neighbouring hamlet of Fixey. We so enjoyed a tour of a winery here and a fabulous dinner!
