Nuits-Saint-Georges: Pink wine and pink limestone

We arrived at our hotel just outside Nuits-Saint-Georges, France. Here we enjoyed a delightful meal of a stuffed beef cuisine. It was a bread-like substance stuffed with beef. It was delicious. To top off the wonderful meal, we had a light creme dessert with fresh fruit on the side.

After dinner, we decided to take a walk into Nuits-Saint-Georges. It was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel. This little town is in the center of the local wineries in Burgundy.

The town was very cute and it was surprisingly busy for the time of night.

There was outdoor music playing, so we got a glass of local wine and ate some cheese. It felt very French. During that day I realized that the French do smile, at least the French in Burgundy. The limestone we walked on was pink, the sky had a tinge of pink as the sun set and we drank pink wine.
