Celebrating Burgundy Wine
Win a mixed case of fine wine from Bouchard Aîné and Fils
[UKPRwire, Mon Sep 10 2012] With the grape harvest about to begin in Burgundy, autumn is a wonderful time to visit one of the most famous wine regions in the world as the Côte d'Or turns to gold. The website www.burgundytoday.com is an information resource which connects the independent traveller to the best that this glorious area of France has to offer, and top of any tourist's list is wine.
With a myriad of small scale wine producers, it is not always easy to access the best places to visit in Burgundy. Wine tasting and tasting lunches are in demand, see our Gourmet Tours section, and guided tours of half or one day to the vineyards and cellars are growing in popularity, opening those often illusive doors.
To get you in the mood and to celebrate the wine harvest, www.burgundytoday.com is offering a case of fine Burgundy wine from the cellars of Bouchard Aîné et Fils to the winner of its latest competition running until October 21.
Bouchard Aîné et Fils is one of the most prestigious cellars in Burgundy, open daily to visitors for tastings. Over the weekend of the Hospices de Beaune charity wine auction in November, it is offering a special tasting entitled 'Wine and Flavours of the World'. The lucky winner of the burgundytoday competition will also receive two tickets to this event, an incentive if ever there was one to plan a visit.
Apart from the world acclaimed wines, Burgundy offers stunning châteaux, abbeys and Romanesque churches and food that is considered some of the best in France, an accolade in this self-confessed nation of gourmets. There are picturesque canals, well planned cycle routes in the gentle rolling countryside and festivals throughout the year to delight.
