Linked to Paris by a high-speed TGV train historic Burgundy is only 1 hour and 40 minutes away. Dijon is the best gateway for your next corporate wine tour in Burgundy.
Burgundy offers some of France's most gorgeous countryside: rolling green hills dotted with mustard fields and medieval villages. The region's dashingly handsome capital, Dijon, is heir to a glorious architectural heritage that goes back to the Renaissance, the Middle Ages and also Gallo-Roman and Celtic antiquity. Two great French passions, wine and food, come together here in a particularly rich and enticing form. In 2015, Burgundy's vineyards were granted Unesco World Heritage status in recognition of the famous “climats” of the region. Burgundy is also a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. You can cycle through the Côte d'Or vineyards, hike in the Morvan Natural Park, glide along the Yonne's waterways, or float above it all in a hot-air balloon.
Welcome reception hosted by a wine expert on the famous Climats of Burgundy. He will introduce you to the legendary terroirs of Burgundy, a treasure of mankind, and conduct your first tasting of great white Chardonnay & Pinot Noir paired with gougères, food specialties of the region.
Burgundy’s gently rolling hills are a pleasant setting to explore by bicycle. Follow the famous trail of the Route des Grands Crus: thousands of miles of peaceful, paved roads await your exploration, and our team knows how best to stay off the beaten track. We’ll lead you to the top of gorgeous wine estates, such as Château de Pommard, to uncork the best splendid vintages before heading to Meursault to savor a gourmet picnic.
A great road trip in a mythic car through the vineyards of Burgundy
Firstly, choose your car between a 2 CV or a genuine Beetle convertible. In France, a 2CV does not pass unnoticed: the 2CV itself is no ordinary car, with its comical body made of paper-thin metal, flap-up windows and a gear shift coming out horizontally from the dashboard! For anyone born before the end of the last century VW’s Beetle holds a special place in people’s affection. Beetle is one of the oldest nameplates in automotive history still in use today.
Take a road trip like no other along the charming back roads of Burgundy passing through the natural scenic canvas of wine estates and French villages. Along the way, stop at the 12th-century Château de Rochepot, a marvelous medieval fortress that offers fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. Then, continue on to Château de Meursault where you will enjoy a visit and tasting followed by an elegant picnic lunch.
The jewel of Beaune's old city is the magnificent Hôtel-Dieu, a vast galleried edifice with a massive roof patterned with Burgundian glazed tiles overlooking an impressive courtyard. This is where the cocktail will take place amidst a splendid garden, specially created for this occasion. What a great place to celebrate the success of these wonderful people who give great customer service! Candlelight dinner in the sumptuous wooden lounge, a real sensory experience with Michelin star cuisine, elite Burgundy wines and classical harpist concert.
