How much wine can a country take? Quite a lot, taking into account Burgundy, famous for wine. But not only wine has made it famous. It is also its crystal-clear rivers, its ancient monasteries and dark green forests. Even if the forest region is not at high altitudes, it offers steep gorges and even clefts. MontBeuvray, a wooded plateau offers a splendid view over the vineyards in the east. The most unusual paths through the wine country Burgundy are its waterways. The region is framed by the rivers Saône, Seine, Yonne und Loire, which are interconnected by canals.La Côte d’Or, the chalk plateau between Dijon and Autun is Burgundy’s most famous region. On its slopes the wine growing areas are stretched so much spoilt by the sun.
