A Perfect Sunday in a Vineyard in Beaune

IMG_5917

Step 1: A simple but satisfying midday brunch on a sunny terrace in the town of Beaune, near Dijon in Burgundy, with good friends, mini-crêpes topped with Nutella, meat-filled bread slices, cold-cuts and a variety of cheeses along with a picture-perfect bowl of fresh fruit.

Step 2: A cup of coffee over an hour-long conversation about the recent European Union elections and a smattering of other subjects that eventually lead to questioning the American at the table about crocodiles in Florida.

Step 3: Making our way across winding country roads to a sun-sprinkled vineyard and its thousand-year old crumbling storehouses, reminders of France’s 2000+ years of wine production. Move further away from civilization in both space and time.
