Athenaeum de la Vigne et du VinRight across from the Hospices de Beaune, wine lovers can find nirvana at Athenaeum de la Vigne et du Vin. The shop stocks books and videos in several languages, every carafe and glass under the sun, and objects for the serious oenophile, including transport and tasting boxes. Also available is wine itself, from South African and Tuscan bottles to Bordeaux, Loire Valley, and, of course, Burgundy vintages.
