TOPLESS VINEYARD HOPPING

Imagine the pleasure of wending your way through the rolling vine-lined hills in Mâcon wine country, near Dijon—but in a convertible. You travel by a dozen vine­yards (Mâconnais boasts 26 AOCs), the route chosen by your driver for their verdant countryside vistas. Local wines await at the cellars of the tiny village square in Viré. Traveling southward toward the village of Igé for a château visit, and after continu­ing along la route des vins de Bourgogne to Azé, you visit the prehistoric grottos. In Berzé, you have a languid lunch at a bistrot de pays with suggested wines.
