The Frugal Traveler: Sip, Save And Sightsee, Wine Tourism For Less

In Beaune, France, we enjoyed an affordable wine tasting by candlelight at the Marche Aux Vins after touring the picturesque and historic hospice in the village, and pottery shopping at the weekly market. Later that same month, returning from a scenic drive on Mount Baldo in Northern Italy, we stumbled across a castle that was also a functioning winery. There is a broad menu of wine-tasting options during vacations and short excursions.
