Imagine a medieval village in a celebrated wine region of Burgundy surrounded by rolling hills of bountiful vineyards. In the village sits a castle which has been owned by the same family since the 1800s. Now imagine that the castle has been sold to a Chinese businessman who closed it to the public. It happened in the village of Gevrey-Chambertin in eastern Burgundy. The World's Adeline Sire tells anchor Marco Werman that the villagers, who fear losing part of their cultural heritage to China, are upset.
