The French Food And Wine Trail That's A Must-Visit For Gourmands
A special French food and wine trail that begins in Dijon and ends in Cassis allows travelers to savor regional cuisines and enjoy highly sought-after wines. Groves of chestnuts, fields of lavender, and picturesque villages line the Vallée de la Gastronomie, a compact route that leads food lovers through areas known for their dishes and drinks.
The Vallée de la Gastronomie invites explorers to learn more about the history of French areas while also meeting farmers and entrepreneurs responsible for delicious foods and beverages. This includes wines from estates in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Juliénas, Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, and Saint-Amour.
Gourmands can also visit Bouches du Rhône and try local dishes such as daube provençale (a type of beef stew), brousse (a fresh cheese made from sheep's or goat's milk), and wines like Côtes de Provence and Coteaux d'Aix. Travelers enjoy these world-class wines before journeying to the final point of the trail: the area surrounding Gard.
The lands of Southern France's Gard region are home to foods like cod brandade (a baked dip made from cod and potatoes), bull gardiane (a hearty bull stew), stuffed Cévennes onions, sweet chestnut tarts, and loaves of quince bread. Costières de Nîmes wines also bring robust and spicy notes to the palate to the end of this special tour.
