09-26-09 Wine Country - Burgandy, France

By Scott Shephard

You are looking at some of the most valuable "farm land" in the world. And interestingly, the land behind me (on the other side of the road I am standing on) is even more valuable. This photo was taken a few miles from Beaune, France.

My wife and I had taken the train from Dijon to spend the day in Beaune but when we got off the train, we saw a bicycle rental shop and decided to bike around wine country instead. Though it rained, it was a great day. However, wine country is hilly and a the ride was a little more strenuous than we had bargained for.
