A full day overview of the great variety and quality of Burgundy wines visiting four different wineries with a private guide.


A full day overview of the great variety and quality of Burgundy wines visiting four different wineries. We will follow the Burgundy wine route and take you through some backroads. On this one day tour you will focus on Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune, but also touch on the Cote Challonaise. Along the way you will enjoy beautiful panoramas and drive through many storybook villages.

Talking about Burgundy most people will think about the "magic" red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes. Because of the unique climate and the enormous diversity in soil types, Burgundy wine makers know how and are able to produce absolute gems in red wines. Your guide will let you taste some great Premier Crus and Grand Crus. You will be shown where the grapes have grown. You can touch the soil yourself so to speak.

But Burgundy has more to offer. Of course you will also get to know some great white wines from Chardonnay grapes for example. You will travel by luxury car or minibus on a private tour.
