Il était une fois a Mâcon...
Festival This popular festival is back and the 2009 edition is being held in the capital of southern Burgundy - Mâcon and a nearby wine village of Pierreclos, as well as in a smaller commune of Chardonnay, which gave name to the most popular grape variety in the world. We will be staying, as always, in the Beaune Motel and in the region of Côte de Beaune we are planning to visit our winemakers as usual. They are in Pommard, Saint-Aubin, Saint-Romain and Beaune. The programme is now being prepared.
