Detroit is a car town. Houston is an oil town. Beaune is a wine town. Although I think it has some tourist attractions. We didn’t see any of them. After a long day of wine-tasting with Jean-Michel, we strolled its charming streets. If you need a movie location that screams cute French town, look no further than Beaune.
They filmed the movie Chocolat in a town not far from Beaune.
We stumbled (not literally) into a student organization holding a wine and cheese soiree to raise money. It was 12 Euros ($16) for all you can eat and drink. His favorite part was the local honey. We all loved the Dijon (a nearby town) mustard. I liked the stinky cheeses.
This town is adorable. It’s Beaune-ified.
