Today I am writing from the heart of Burgundy and the capital of the Burgundian wine trade, Beaune, France. I am here for the annual Hospices de Beaune—one of the original wine fairs and celebrations. Every where you go in the town, there are places to taste Burgundy wine, street vendors selling every Burgundian specialty, and wall-to-wall people. It would be a dream come true except I have a cold. Not just any cold, but by far the worst cold in memory, which means I can not smell a thing. It won’t stop me from trying to absorb all I can, though. Before I run (well, more of a saunter) out the door, I have one reminder for you:
- The deadline for the latest Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC36) is this Monday (11/20)! All the information can be found HERE.
Have a Safe Saturday!
