Nuits-Saint-Georges - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Côte-d'Or

The municipality of Nuits-Saint-Georges is smaller than size, for his fame radiates throughout the region and beyond, thanks to the prestige of its wines. With a highly developed economy oriented around the business of the vine, it also stands out for its privileged location on the main roads. Its architectural and cultural heritage is to discover on Route des Grands Crus and the circuit of Hautes Cotes, over authentic villages cultivating the good life.

A little history :

From prehistoric times, the caves of Light-Holes are occupied. The Gallic period focuses at the foot of Charmois wood: walnut and hazelnut trees in this place gave their name to Nights and its river Meuzin (which designates a wetland and vegetation that grows there: trees, flowers, herbs...).

In Gallo-Roman times, the first city was built in the south, in a locality called later "in Bolars" or "The Bolards". In the fourteenth century, the building of walls creates the current heart of the city, bringing Nuits and Nuits-Upstream Downstream.

In 1892 Nights Nuits-Saint-Georges becomes the name of its oldest believed composed around the year 1000. Since then, the reputation of the wines of the Côte de Nuits and Hautes-Côtes has continued to strengthen until... on the moon ! In July 1971, the Apollo XV mission put a label on the moon of the cuvée "Earth-Moon" in 1959, in tribute to Jules Verne and Felix Tisserand at (born in Nuits). The largest lunar crater and is named "Saint-Georges".

Halfway between Dijon and Beaune, in the department of Côte d'Or, the Land of Nuits-Saint-Georges is at the center of the Burgundian country and the heart of the Côte de Nuits, true "Champs Elysées" of Burgundy. It comprises twenty-five villages distributed among the hillside vineyards and cereal plains.
