The heart of Burgundy's renowned Côte de Nuits wine region, Nuits-Saint-Georges is a must-visit for wine enthusiasts. However, there are plenty of other charms to be discovered in this historic town, which has been occupied since the Roman era.
Surrounded by vineyard-covered hills, Nuits-Saint-Georges offers an authentic experience of the French countryside. Around this small town's main street you'll find a number of shops and cafés, as well as sight like a number of historic churches and the town hall, which dates back to the 17th century.
If you'd like to learn more about this small, yet charming town, Nuits-Saint-Georges museums are worth exploring, covering ancient archeological findings, as well as how the local wines and cassis are produced.
A jewel in the heart of the Côte de Nuits wine region, Gevrey-Chambertin has been known for its winemaking since the 1st-Century BC.
While the area's vineyards are the main attraction for most visitors to Gevrey-Chambertin, the village itself is steeped in charm, and its 13th-Century church is worth a visit. The surrounding countryside is dramatic and impressive, and the Combe Lavaux - Jean Roland nature reserve lies just outside the village, making it a great starting point for hiking.
