Savigny-lès-Beaune is one of the wine communes of the Côte de Beaune. It is a picturesque village of some architectural interest, including several châteaux, a Romanesque clock tower and a charming church (St.-Cassien).

Château and Museums[edit]

The main Château (pictured) dates from the fourteenth century. It has museums that have little to do with its wine producing activities. The Château has various museum collections: "Musee de la moto" (~250 motorbikes, from 1902-1960); "Musee de la Voiture de Course Arbath" (Abarth racing cars); "Musee de l'Aéronautique" (aviation - around 80 aircraft, mostly warbirds, including many by Dassault and Mikoyan/MiG); "Musee de al Maquettes d'Avion" (around 2,500 1:72 scale model aircraft); "Musee du Tracteur Enjambeur" (tractors) ; "Musee du Matériel Vinaire et Viticole" (viticulture); "Musee des Pompeurs" (fire engines).[1]
