As oenophiles we love France! But we love so much more about France than the wine ~ the landscapes, culture, the people, the Joie de Vive ~ we really love it all. After our first few trips, however, we realized we really needed to put a lot of effort into finding appropriate dining options. We would wander the towns looking at menus and would often just settle on pizza because we were too tired to continue the search. As foodies, we were always disappointed that we hadn’t enjoyed much traditional French cuisine. Now, we begin researching our options months in advance and are rarely disappointed! Bon apétit!

Restaurants we’ve visited: Orangerie, Chenonceau ~ Café Lavinal, Bages ~ Chez Guy, Gevrey-Chambertin
