France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Nuits-Saint-Georges, Burgundy
Famous for its red wines, this small town in Burgundy has lots to offer to those who love wine.

 
   

 

Located right in the middle of Burgundy's Côte d'Or among the most renowned Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards, the delightful small town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, 16 km (10 miles) northeast of Beaune (map), is well equipped for use as a base for close-up explorations of the vineyards and châteaux by car, bicycle, or on foot.

With a dozen good hotels and inns, Nuits-Saint-Georges is smaller and more personal than Beaune, so it's easier to become familiar with the town, its people, its restaurants, and the vineyards and wineries that surround it.

In warm weather, enjoy one of the outdoor restaurants on the main plaza. We enjoyed a delicious boeuf bourguignon, accompanied by a bottle of local wine.

Nuits-St-Georges recently "pedestrianized" its town center and made it very welcoming to visitors.

You might also want to go to the outskirts of town and visit the Church of Saint-Symphorien, which dates from the 13th century. You'll find a golden statue of St-Vincent, the patron saint of wine—he's very popular in Burgundy!

The Office de Tourisme du Pays de Nuits-Saint-Georges is at 3, Rue Sonoys, 21700 Nuits-Saint-Georges, France (Tel +33 3 80 62 11 17).

Most intercity trains take you first to Beaune, then by regional TER train to Nuits-Saint-Georges.
