On day one, your trip will start at 16:00 with an introductory tour and tasting session of six Burgundian wines at a premium estate a short walk from the hotel. You will continue to build on your newfound knowledge on day two, where you will meet your English-speaking driver/guide for a full day transported and guided tour of the vineyards as part of a small group (maximum eight guests). You will be transported in an off-road vehicle, allowing access to locations that are usually off-limits. You will visit both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, experiencing the range of wines this prestigious region has to offer.

During the first part of the tour, you will be introduced to the sources of some of the greatest Chardonnay wines- namely the famous vineyards of Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. In addition to white wine, you will also be introduced to the Pinot Noir grape from Pommard, Volnay and Santenay. The morning will conclude with a visit to a nearby domaine in the Côte de Beaune, where the owner will take you on a full tour of the estate and beautiful vaulted cellars, explaining to you all about their wines as you taste them.

In the afternoon, you will explore the Côte de Nuits, driving through the famous vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée, Vougeot, Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin. Your guide will reveal to you the secrets of Burgundy wine whilst you enjoy a glass in the heart of the vineyards. Your time in the Côte de Nuits will then conclude with a visit to a second domaine, for a tour of the estate and cellars and followed by tastings of the estate’s wines. A four course gourmet dinner will be served in a premium city centre restaurant, accompanied by local wine, water and coffee.

If you opt for the four day package, you will also visit the famed appellation of Puligny-Montrachet, where you will be welcomed as guests at one of the biggest names in the village. The experience will include a tour of the cellars followed by a broad tasting of seven wines from the Côte de Beaune offered alongside a delightful three course lunch. The owners and staff are very gracious hosts and the wine tastings and meal always prove both enjoyable and enlightening. If you are visiting the estate on a Saturday, a vineyard tour will also be included in your experience.
