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.
