Take an exclusive tour along the back routes over the Cote de Nuits which promises a stunning view of the region. Here, you will learn the plantation production and characteristics of the famous red grape of Burgundy- Pinot Noir. This will be followed by an exclusive tasting of a Burgundian Pinot noir wine to understand the lesson better.

Then, it is off to visit Château of Clos de Vougeot. Standing in the very heart of Burgundy’s vineyards, it was originally a wine farm, built in the 12th century by monks from the nearby Abbey of Cîteaux. In the 16th century, a Renaissance style château was added to the existing buildings. With its medieval vat-house and presses, Cistercian cellar and original kitchens, it forms a unique architectural whole, attracting history lovers, architecture lovers or wine lovers. The Château du Clos de Vougeot also hosts famous receptions. It is renowned as one of the very best “table d’hôte” of France.

Even though the Château du Clos de Vougeot does not produce wine anymore, it stays the symbol of Burgundy’s millenary history.

You will be a part of an exclusive tasting of some incredible wines. Mingle with the local wine-growers and learn from them about their wine-making techniques and enjoy guided wine-tasting sessions with them.

Then, head on to the beautiful countryside of Haut Côtes de Nuits. Soak in the beautiful surroundings of high vines, brambles planted along country roads in the quaint and charming Burgundian villages.
