BUR­GUNDY IS FOR LOVERS - AND THE WINE IS NOT BAD EI­THER

LuxeGetaways - - Getaways -

France’s Côte d'Or is a mag­i­cal re­gion for Pinot Noir and Ch­ablis grapes. It is also an in­spir­ing can­vas on which to paint your own love story. Cas­tles and vine­yards dot the hilly ter­rain around La Ferme de la Lochère, an el­e­gantly re­stored for­mer horse barn to the nearby chateau, which is now a villa for two, or more. Pro­pri­etress Kather­ine Frelon, be­sides be­ing a stylish in­te­rior dec­o­ra­tor, is also a top-notch pri­vate chef. Ar­range your stay, and she will ac­com­pany you to the lo­cal farmer’s mar­ket for pro­vi­sions in order to pre­pare an un­for­get­table “Bur­gun­dian Feast” with you back at the villa. You can also feel like a lo­cal by learn­ing to make gougère (baked sa­vory choux pas­try made with choux dough and a va­ri­ety of cheeses) to en­joy with your ch­ablis. Her wine ex­pert, Bren­dan Moore, can even take you on a pri­vate tour of the lo­cal vine­yards and wine caves to meet his friends – the grape farm­ers and vint­ners. If you are lucky, you might even re­ceive an in­vite to share a bot­tle of pre­mier cru. Here, you have the op­por­tu­nity to eat, drink and cook like the lo­cals. Divine!
