Driving from Semur en Auxois to Barcelona.

would like to spend one night between Semur en Auxois and Barcelona. Any suggestions as to which town/city would be interesting? Love wine and could be fun to stay where there is an interesting winery. However, the goal is to get about halfway to Barcelona so neither drive day is terribly long.

Somewhere around Avignon? Tavel is noted for its rosé, maybe 15-20 minutes from Avignon.

It's an 8 hour drive, according to Google and likely more. I wonder, then, why not take the train and stop off in any of a number of nice places between Burgundy and Barcelona if that's what you want to do?

Taking a car into a second country will incur fees, unless you plan to return it to the original rental point in France (assuming you pick up the car in France), so why not relax and enjoy the scenery and let someone else do the driving.

I'd go farther than Avignon myself, there are plenty of wineries in the Pays d'Oc or Roussillon. In fact, I buy some in the US from around Nimes or Corbieres, but I can't recall the label. There are some around Montpellier, also. HEre are some
