Vineyard walks

With our cellars in Buxy as a starting point, we would like to recommend three walks, lasting a few hours, which will allow you to see the vineyards and everything that constitutes our exceptional heritage of hamlets, villages, monuments and scenic views. You will not be able to deny the charm of the landscape; a blend of nature in harmony with finesse and the results of patient labour. What a beautiful discovery!

MONTAGNY-LÈS-BUXY

Located 3 kilometres west of Buxy, this ancient Burgundy village is built at the apex of a natural amphitheatre of vines. Montagny-Lès-Buxy enjoys an eminent reputation thanks to the quality of its wines - which were the preferred choice of the Monks of Cluny. Writings of the time show that the Canons of Saint-Vincent were some of its greatest fans.

SAINT-VALLERIN

Situated 4 km south of Buxy in the middle of the vineyards, Saint-Vallerin is one of the 4 villages from which the Montagny appellation is produced. The village has a beautiful partially Romanesque church crowned with a stone bell-tower and rich in baptism records. Just below the church there is a magnificent covered communal wash-house. Among the many castles, that of the Hameau de la Tour houses an aviary in each of its towers. A statue of the Virgin, placed on the cliff overlooking the village, offers a wonderful panorama where Mont Blanc regularly appears illuminated by the rising sun. It is on this plateau that we find limestone grasslands dotted with boxwood and lined with stone walls.

• Enjoy the panoramic view from the cliff of the Virgin

SAINT-BOIL

Located on the road linking the Grands Vins de Bourgogne, Saint-Boil generously marries hills and pastures with its rich heritage. Here you can visit a Gallo-Roman quarry, the 12th century Romanesque bell tower, the viaduct of Crainseny and the spring, La Goutteuse.

The commune encompasses 5 hamlets, each offering an intriguing heritage: the chateaus of Thil and La Bouthière, the wash-houses and ovens of Filletières.

At the top is the church and from this viewpoint you can see the plains of the Saone and Grosne to the east and the vineyard hillsides to the west. In the hamlet of Ponneau surrounded by beautiful forests, we find the chateau with its chapel named for Saint Jacques; this also features a statue of San Sebastian. 4 kilometres south of Buxy, the vineyards encircle the village and the hamlets of Saint-Vallerin where you can see some beautiful stone houses.
