This morning we said goodbye to our Champagne farmhouse and headed 3 hours south to Burgundy.
The first place we stopped is called Clos du Vougeot. It used to be a winery built by monks many centuries ago. We had a tour and lunch/ tasting. The building is no longer used for wine making but was very interesting to see.
After the tour we had lunch and a tasting. It was nice, but we had some difficulty understanding the descriptions….. and a little bit long winded.
After that we headed to Chandon de Briailles for a tasting. We are also staying on the property for two nights in a little back house. The wines were excellent and the property is beautiful.
Tomorrow, we have a couple more tasting and may try to explore the city a bit.
Special shout out to all those that are making this trip possible. We literally couldn’t do it without you. You know who you are.
