Specialty Museums · Wineries & Vineyards · Gift & Specialty Shops
Côte-d'Or is a premier wine-growing department in the Bourgogne (Burgundy) region that produces what are inarguably the world's finest, and definitely most expensive, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines, from some of the most rigorously and painstakingly classified vineyards in the world. Many people attest that the abundance of monasteries in the department has been the reason for the vast and well-maintained viticulture. No matter what you believe, this abundance of monasteries means that there are many historical abbeys and religious attractions to visit between vineyard tours and wine tastings.
