Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is one of the most intricate and fragmented wine-producing regions in France. A long, narrow strip located in the east of the country, it is a delightful patchwork of vineyards, some made up of only a handful of rows of vines. The region’s geographical location is fundamentally linked to the identity of its wines. The unique conditions created by a combination of southerly, oceanic and continental influences have a positive effect on winegrowing and have also impacted certain choices of varietals over the years.

The vines of the Côte de Beaune and Hautes Côtes de Beaune, surrounding the pitturesque town of Beaune, enjoy hot, dry weather during the summer that often extends into the autumn, ensuring good ripening. The slopes in this area allow the grapes to enjoy the best hours of sunshine and also protect the vines from westerly winds and offer beneficial draining. 

These regions are unique in that they are the only ones to produce such inimitable red wines at such altitude.

This is a unique opportunity to:

  • SEE the finest vineyards and villages of the Côte de Beaune.
  • TASTE the best wines from Aloxe- Corton to Saint-Aubin. You will be welcomed in all simplicity into the homes of the local winegrowers. On a different note, you will find yourself plunged into the hushed universe of one of the magnificent châteaux in the chic yet laid- back ambiance of Pommard or Meursault, for example.
  • UNLOCK the secrets of the grands crus of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet before moving onto the Corton hill.
  • ADMIRE the cliffs of the picturesque village of Saint-Romain hidden away at the bottom of a valley.

A private luxury vehicle will be at your disposal to whisk you away on this guided tour of the Burgundy vineyards and through the gates of 3 authentic wineries to private wine tastings.
