Burgundy is an astonishingly rich region in terms of its remarkable heritage and gastronomic excellence which dates back to the time of the monks and Dukes of Burgundy. They built some amazing buildings, and carefully managed the land to maximise the potential for farming crops, livestock and vines.
As such, Burgundy has become a haven for food and wine lovers, with dishes such as boeuf bourguignon, and famous cheeses like Epoisses. Matching the cuisine with the delicate wines here is a thoroughly pleasant way to pass the time.
Burgundy also offers some lovely landscapes through which to embark on a gourmet tour, visiting the local wineries and gourmet food producers!
