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.
The next stop is a cave in Chassagne Montrachet where we will taste the 5 Grand Crus of Montrachet (plus Corton Charlemagne which makes it a tasting of all the Grand Cru white wines in Burgundy). This is a special experience.
Lunch is at the Le Bistro du Bord de LÉau. This is in the small village of Levernois. It is the bistro associated with the Hostellerie de Levernois.
The rest of the afternoon is free and in the evening dinner is produced by the group from produce bought at the market in Beaune.
