Explore the Sights and Wines of the Côte de Beaune wine region

Pick up in Beaune

This morning, we will come and pick you up at the train station, your hotel, AirBnB or accommodation in Beaune or the surrounding area.

Meet your Expert Guide

Meet your English speaking guide who is an expert on Burgundy Wines and who will go over the program and itinerary of your private wine tour with you. Then, board your Premium, air-conditioned vehicle and begin your private tour to discover the vineyards of the Côte de Beaune wine producing region. 

Arrive in the Côte de Beaune wine region

The Côte de Beaune wine region covers roughly 20 kilometers (12 miles) between the northern and southern part of the appellation. Both red and white wines are produced here with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay being the main grape varieties planted. Historically  known as "Vin de Beaune" or "Pinot Vermeil" it wasn't until 1936 that the wines were classified using the AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) classification system.

The appellation is home to some famous Grands Crus such as Corton, Corton-Charlemagne or Montrachet while other appellations have some 'climats' classified as Premiers Crus such as Aloxe-Corton, Chassagne-Montrachet, Pommard, Santenay or Volnay.

Wine tasting experience

Drive along the rolling hills and stunning landscapes through top rated wine appellations such as Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and Chassagne-Montrachet. Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Chassagne-Montrachet wines are considered to be some of the finest whites wines produced in Burgundy while Volnay and Pommard produce some of the most elegant and delicate red wines of Burgundy. This is definitely high on the list of all wine lovers.

Here, you will arrive in a local estate to begin your Burgundy wine tasting experience. Enjoy a private commented tasting of local Côte de Beaune wines. Your guide, who is a wine expert, will be with you so do not hesitate to ask questions concerning the wines that you will be tasting.

Pre-book your lunch option with us

For lunch it is possible for you to pre-book one of our meal options that have been put in place to enhance your Burgundy wine tour experience. You will be able to select the option that is adapted to your wishes during the booking process.

Lunch Option 1 - Wine tasting lunch at a family estate. Set menu of Burgundy dishes and cheeses to pair with a selection of the estate’s wines. (Closed on Sundays)

Lunch Option 2 - Lunch at a vineyard restaurant. Bistro menu choice.

After lunch, continue your Côte de Beaune wine tasting experience

To perfect this wine tour in Burgundy, travel through the winegrowing villages to the north of Côte de Beaune. As you are driven through the vineyards, reach the Hill of Corton, a unique place famous for its Grands Crus red and white wines. The Corton Hill is located alongside the Route des Grands Crus at the northern tip of the Côte de Beaune wine region. On these slopes over 150 hectares of vines are divided into numerous appellations including 2 Grands Crus: Corton red and Corton Charlemagne white.

It will now be time for another wine tasting experience of the local wines. Participate in a prestigious commented tasting at a renowned estate: Compare the elegance of the Pinots Noirs with the unoaked white wines. Again, don't hesitate to ask any question you might have to your guide who will be with you during the tasting session.

After the tasting, it will be time to make our way back to Beaune and that will be the end of our services. Please note that we also organize Côte de Nuits Grands Crus wine tours including Clos de Vougeot Château, Hospices de Beaune guided tours and day tours from Dijon.
