VISIT BEAUNE, BURGUNDY
WE TAKE YOU TO A PRIVATE WINE TOUR IN BOURGOGNE COTE DE BEAUNE & COTE DE NUITS
Are you planning a trip to Burgundy? No trip to Burgundy is complete without discovering the wines, vineyards and cellars of Burgundy and indulging in wine tasting. And one of the best ways to enjoy a wide variety of Burgundy wines is to take a wine tour of the region.
Burgundy wines are the precious heritage of the work of the monks who, between the 6th and 15th centuries, patiently developed the methods of working in the vineyard. Their authentic know-how has been passed down from generation to generation, until today.
We take you to the Hautes-Côtes, the Côte de Beaune, the Côte de Nuits to taste excellent wines from the Regional and Village appellation, and some Premiers Crus. For half a day, a full day or a tour of Burgundy wines over several days, our oenologist will take you to the heart of picturesque vineyards, in wine cellars containing delicious wines made with passion.
You will meet winemakers who are off the beaten tourist road, passionate men and women who take care of the vines, make the wine, raise it and sell it. They will share with you their in-depth knowledge of Burgundy wines and vineyards, will make the visit very informative and fun and will show you the best stops of the wine route.
