Travel to French wine country in December, HELP!

PinotPlease | Jun 6, 200711:09 AM     24

Hi Hounders, my hubby and I are thinking of traveling to France in the winter (Have to be in the UK for Xmas and wanted to make it somewhat fun ;-) )

I'd thought about going to a wine region, Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Loire. However, all the info on travel to these regions seems to be skewed towards the Summer peak travel months. Has anyone ever gone wine touring in France in the winter time? What about Italy? Do places tend to shut down around the holidays?

Any insight is much appreciated! Thanks!
