Château de Savigny-les-Beaune

A beautiful chateau whose main business is wine production. The wine is available for tasting, and very nice it is too. The Château itself is open to the public and has many collections, including Arbarth racing cars, vinyard tractors, motorbikes, and 2,500 model aircraft.

The grounds are mainly given over to a vast collection of military aircraft. There is no nearby airfield, and all the aircraft have arrived by road, and it seems that many aircraft are made up from assorted bits of others, so the registrations may be somewhat nominal, if not entirely ficticious. The whole place makes a great day out - shame there isn't a cafe.
