A Gourmet walk in the Mâconnais

The Mâconnais is a wine growing region with a southern accent where rolling landscapes are alternated with monumental cliffs.  A highlight is to walk to one of the great places of pilgrimage – Cluny.  In this wonderful environment,  the Chardonnay grape reigns supreme and patches of Gamay can be found.
