After breakfast, we are off to the rich and colourful meeting point of the “Beaunois”, the Saturday market and the major market day in Beaune.
Covering many city blocks, you can buy anything here that the appetite desires - fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, cheese, and spices. Organic and local produce is available from the farms close-by. Elsewhere you can buy everything from antiques to berets.
Previous groups have found this to be a highlight and you will be given ample time to wander through the market. We encourage people to buy a few products that then allows us to have a pot luck dinner in the evening.
We then visit Chateau Pommard. This is a large estate with cellars that go back to the 11th century. A tasting of their wines will conclude the visit.
The next stop is a cave in Chassagne Montrachet where we will taste the 5 Grand Crus of Montrachet. This is a special experience.
Lunch is at the Auberge Vieux Vigneron in Corpeau. This is a small village where one would not expect to find an auberge of this quality. The rest of the afternoon is free and the even meal will be back at La Terre D’Or with purchases made from the market
