Trip Summary

Burgundy wine tours

Taste world-famous Burgundy wines on our fabulous three and four day Hidden Gem breaks at Château de Gilly. Our Hidden Gem breaks are based at lovely, quaint properties, and Château de Gilly is a historic property full of character, located in the absolute heart of the Grand Cru Côte de Nuits vineyards. Originally a residence for Cistercian Monks, the historically-listed Château d was transformed in 1988 into a luxury hotel. As part of this package you will enjoy informative tours and extensive tastings at premium Burgundy estates as well as sample traditional regional dishes, discovering for yourself what makes Burgundy such a unique place.

Upon arrival in Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, check into your Superior room at the 5* Château de Gilly. The remainder of the day will then be free for you to do as you please. In the evening, a four course gastronomic dinner will be served in the hotel’s gourmet restaurant. Please note that drinks have not been included as part of the package, and can be ordered and paid for locally.
