La Rochepot / Saint Aubin
Dominated by its magnificent 12th century castle, La Rochepot is above all a village of winegrowers. This locality produces superb Hautes Côtes de Beaune, which will delight your taste-buds. Dolmens and covered passages are proof that the site has been occupied since the Neolithic era.
The Château de la Rochepot is one of the most interesting in Burgundy for its history, its architecture and its multi-coloured roofs. It can be visited between March and October, every day except Tuesday. There is also the 12th century Church of Saint Georges
A wine-growing village producing famous wines, Saint Aubin’s main street is built over the traces of an ancient Roman road.
Its 10th century church and stone spire are unique in Burgundy. Nestling in a valley, its hamlet, Gamay, is a gem of preserved architecture and a (private) stronghold from the 10th and 11th centuries.
The wines produced in this locality are atypical and worth discovering...
