Le Pied dans le Plat is the bar and bottleshop established by Domaine de la Cadette and Domaine Montanet-Thoden. Housed in an old garage on the outskirts of the quaint village of Saint Pere this is a place where you can buy the delicious natural wines made by Jean, Catherine and Valentin Montanet or simply stop here for a glass of wine, a snack or a full meal at lunch timewhile enjoying the view on the terrace which looks towards the perched village of Vezelay.
All of their wines are excellent, however if you are looking for something a bit different to try then go for the delicious Melon de Bourgogne (there is only a tiny amount of this grape variety left in Burgundy) or the l'Ermitage which is mainly Pinot Noir but has 15% of the very rare Cesar grape which adds a spice flavour to the wine.
During the time of harvest you will also be able to see the work being carried out in the cave next door where all their wine is made.
