Trip Summary

Beaune wine tasting and walking tour

The Burgundy region is very picturesque and what a better way to explore the world-famous Burgundy vineyards than by walking from village to village, and tasting wines along the way? This package is based in the beautiful town of Beaune, the beating heart of  Burgundy, and has been designed to introduce you to the different wine appellations of the region. Each day includes moderate level walking as well as some exclusive tours and tastings as well as delicious traditional meals.

Upon arrival to the capital of Burgundy wine, you will check into the 4* Hotel de la Poste, a 19th Century former coaching inn, perfectly located in the historical centre. To kickstart your discovery of the wines of the region we will arrange a tour and tasting at a highly-regarded winery in the town. Here, you will have the opportunity to tour the winery and taste six wines. The evening will then be free for you to do as you please.
