Morey-Saint-Denis and Domaine Pierre Amiot & Fils

There is no bad time to visit Burgundy. Even late October after harvest can be magic. The grapes have been picked, the vines are shutting down and the crowds are few. As long as you have rainwear and an adventurous attitude, you are all set.

If you’re thinking about a visit to the region, I have some details for you at the bottom of this post. You can do it!

A Walk Around Morey-Saint-Denis
When you visit Burgundy, leave time to wander in the little villages and in the vineyards. There are plenty of paths, and with a good local map, you can easily navigate. You can even search out that special lieu dit or clos you’ve always loved, or just dreamed about. (click on any photo to start full size slide show, “escape” to return)

Visit to Domaine Pierre Amiot & Fils
With a 2:00pm appointment in hand, we were looking forward to our visit to Domaine Pierre Amiot & Fils. I had gone out in the morning to walk in the vineyards immediately around the village and the winery. It turned out to be a good decision, as I had the opportunity to walk in the vines responsible for the wines we would taste later in the day.

Resources For Your Visit
A couple of key points before your visit:

  • Winery visits in Burgundy (like much of Europe) require a reservation. I would highly recommend you limit yourself to one morning visit and one afternoon visit. Leave time to explore the villages and the vineyards!
  • Dinner reservations are also key. There certainly are wine bars and casual bistro’s, but even moderate restaurants will fill. You can often get a reservation the same day, just don’t leave it to chance.
  • Plan to visit the tourist office in Beaune at the beginning of your visit for lots of advice, maps, and guides (the Appellation Guide, for example)
  • The Bourgogne-Wines website is super useful resource for planning your trip. There is an excellent search capability for helping you set up winery visits. You can search on a village, select winegrowers who speak English, and even choose growers who sell from the cellar. Start here.
  • You’ll make mistakes and have unexpected adventures. Embrace them, be humble, and have fun!
