Burgundy Wines

Each late January in Burgundy you can enjoy the Saint Vincent Tournante Burgundy Wines Festival. It is a combination of religious and secular traditions in celebration of Burgundy wines and the Saint Patron of wine. The statue of Saint Vincent goes around from village to village and the honor of hosting the statue is given to a different family each year. This year the celebrations are centered around the village of Irancy in the Auxerroi, about two hours drive south-west of Paris.  Kelly Kamborian tells us how to best enjoy the festival as a visitor.

Places Mentioned on this Episode: Irancy, Nuits Saint Georges, Château de Clos de Vougeot, Beaune, Mersault.
