Savor a Range of Wines in this Exceptional Wine making Region
Today, the Côte de Beaune winegrowing region is on your program. The vineyard covers 20km from north to south and faces the morning sun. Wine production here is composed of both red & white wines that are internationally renowned.
Begin your tastings with Butter-Golden Meursault
Nowhere in the Côte de Beaune does the Chardonnay grape do better than it does here. Meursault is greeny-gold in colour or canary yellow, leaning towards bronze as it ages. Limpid and brilliant, it sometimes exhibits silvery highlights. Its bouquet has strong aromas of ripe grapes. The young wine is redolent of toasted almonds and hazelnuts in both a floral and mineral setting. Butter, honey, and citrus fruits are also present.
Upon arrival at the Winery, you will immediately be taken by the meditative atmosphere. The Cellars are among the most prestigious in the region. Here, you will first have the opportunity to visit the grounds and then participate in a fully commented wine tasting session around these elegant White Wines.
Guided tour in one of France’s most prestigious Monuments
After some free time for lunch in or around Meursault, drive back to Beaune for a guided tour of the Hospices de Beaune. Typical example of Burgundy flamboyant gothic style, this former hospital founded in 1443 by the chancellor Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins is the testimony of the Flemish influence on the duchy of Burgundy.
As far as architecture, it is worldwide famous for its colorful polychromatic glazed tile roofs. The Last Judgment triptych painting by Flemish painter Rogier Van Der Weyden is the highlight of the visit. You will tour the Salle des Pôvres (where the sick ones were looked after), the kitchens, the pharmacy and other rooms exhibiting artifacts and tapestries.
Taste some of Burgundy’s most Esteemed Wines
Experience a unique wine tasting session within Beaune. You will be warmly welcomed for a visit of the facilities, cellar and winery. Explanations are clear and adapted to each person’s level of knowledge; the visit is fun & informative. You will round things off with a commented tasting of different appellations such as Saint-Aubin, Auxey-Duresses, Saint-Romain, Corton-Charlemagne while several Premiers Crus and Grands Crus, both red and white, are available.

9.30am pick up at your hotel.
Wander through the Prestigious Vineyards of the Côte de Nuits, Land of Pinot Noir
Located between the town of Dijon and the tiny village of Corgoloin, the Côte de Nuits and Hautes Côtes de Nuits wine producing regions grow along a narrow strip of land that is around 20 kms long and as narrow as 200 meters wide. The wines produced here are mainly red wines and the King of the Grapes is Pinot Noir!
Taste the Originality of Traditional Wines in a Family Owned Domain
Our first stop will be in a family owned winery that has been in the same hands for more than 4 generations. The Domaine is located between Nuits-Saint-Georges and Beaune, in a little village of the Hautes Côtes. During the visit, you will be introduced to the notion of “terroirs” which are very diverse and distinct in this particular area.
The Domaine spreads out over 19 Ha of vines with no less than fourteen different appellations. The winegrower pays particular attention to the environment, organic products and mechanical care of the soil so as to leave a healthy soil for the descendants. The wines are vinified following the traditional method. After your commented wine tasting session, the tour moves on towards the village of Gevrey- Chambertin.
Free Time for Lunch in one of the most famous Villages of Côte de Nuits.
Gevrey-Chambertin is without a doubt one of the most emblematic wine appellations of Burgundy. Considered to be “Pinot Noir” Paradise, its rich “terroir” is home to nine of the thirty-three grands crus of the region. Before reaching the village, your sightseeing along the Grands Crus road will be punctuated by photo opportunities especially
in front of world famous Romanée-Conti. Considered as the most prestigious name of Burgundy, this plot of 1, 8 hectares produces one of the most expensive wines in the world. After lunch, we continue towards the Chateau de Vougeot. Your guide will suggest restaurants depending on your wishes.
A Unique Wine Farm Chateau located in the Heart of the Burgundy Vineyards
If Chateau Clos de Vougeot does not produce wines anymore it still remains a symbol of more than a thousand year of History in Burgundy. In the 12th century, the Chateau is owned by the Monks of Citeaux who cultivate the vines at the time. They construct a wall that surrounds the precious lands giving the domain the name of ‘Clos’ which can be translated as ‘enclosed’.
Upon arrival, you will have the opportunity to visit the 12th century vat house with its huge press machines, the wine cellar or the dormitory with its amazing wooden framework.
Experience a Commented Tasting of Acclaimed Côte de Nuits Wines
Nuits-Saint-Georges is a lively small town with centuries-old history of winemaking. Most of the wines grown here are Pinot Noir but there are some plots planted with Chardonnay. Here, we have organized a commented tasting so that you may better comprehend what makes this wine region so special.
In a carefully selected winery, your tour will begin with the visit of the Vat Room where the greatest Côte de Nuits wines are crafted. Then move on to the magnificent 19th century vaulted cellar where you will be explained the different stages of vinification and maturing of great Burgundy wines. Finally, participate in a commented wine tasting session of several Burgundy Wines. Glass in hand, a wine expert will demonstrate how to taste some of the most prominent “terroirs” of Burgundy.

Who conducts your private tours in BurgundyAll our tours are conducted by English speaking local guides, experts in the destination where they are based. Most of them are fully licensed guides that are authorized to make commentaries in museums, monuments and historical city centers. In the wine regions, most of them hold the WSET level 2 in wines & sprits or are professional sommeliers. Finally, we are proud to mention that we work essentially with our own in-house guides.
Should I stay in Beaune or Dijon?This is a recurring question for those of you that wish to visit the Burgundy region of France. In fact both destinations make for a great starting point for Wine Tours and we offer day trips and wine tours out of both Beaune and Dijon. So the main difference is that Beaune is a small town set more or less in the middle of the Burgundy Wine Region.
Dijon is more a small city located at the northern tip of the Burgundy wine region. Since it is larger, you will have more choices when it comes to hotels, restaurants and things to do in town. Your choice will therefore depend on what type of activities or ambiance you are looking for when not on a wine tour.
