Trip Summary

Essential Dijon Wine Tour

For those looking for a mid-week or weekend wine tour with a fantastic introduction to the various tastes and styles of Burgundy wines available, this may be the answer. All of our Essential wine tours are designed to provide guests with an in-depth insight into the wonderful wine regions, in a short amount of time.

On day one, you will have a free evening to settle in and explore Dijon. You will continue your discovery of the region on day two, where you will meet your English-speaking driver/guide at a central departure point within walking distance of your hotel, for a full day transported and guided tour of the vineyards. You will visit both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, experiencing the range of wines this prestigious region has to offer.

You will travel along the famous Route des Grands Crus, passing through such legendary vineyards as Romanée Conti, Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Echezeaux, and Corton-Charlemagne. Your guide will make a stop among the vines to explain all about the fascinating work that is undertaken in the vineyards. You will continue travelling through the region’s charming villages to visit a family-run winery in the Côte de Beaune. Here, you will have a full tour of the estate and cellars, followed by tastings of at least five of the domaine’s wines, including a Premier and Grand Cru. There will then be some free time for lunch in the picturesque town of Beaune. Your guide will suggest establishments to eat in and where best to try local and regional dishes. If you wish, you will also have time to independently visit Les Hospices de Beaune, which is home to the region’s annual wine auctions. In the afternoon, you will continue onto the Côte de Nuits, a tasting paradise for Pinot Noir lovers. Here, you will visit a second estate, for a full tour and tasting of wines in a different style to those sampled in the morning. At the end of the day, you will be dropped back to the centre of Dijon.

In the evening, a three course dinner with wines will be served in a premium restaurant within walking distance of your hotel.

If you opt for the four day package, on day three you will take a local train to Beaune. You will firstly walk across the historic centre to a local winery, where you will enjoy a full tour and tasting session of six Burgundian wines. Your knowledgeable host will talk you through all of the wines. Following this, you will be met by a pre-booked and pre-paid taxi and driven out into the stunning nearby vineyards of Aloxe-Corton, one of the only villages in Burgundy to boast both red and white Grand Cru wines. Here, you will be welcomed as a guest at the authentic family-owned Domaine Comte Sénard, where you will enjoy a visit of the vineyard, Les Clos des Meix, as well as the 13th Century cellars. The visit will conclude with a three course traditional lunch, during which you will have the unique opportunity to taste six Grand Cru wines, complemented further by comments from one the estate’s sommeliers. After lunch, you will be escorted back to Beaune, where you will be able to take the train back to Dijon at your convenience. The remainder of the evening will be free for you to explore the delights of Dijon independently.
