Sign Up for a Wine Tour
Our tours and tastings are conducted by BILINGUAL BURGUNDY WINEMAKERS, Marina, Camille, and Gary.
What to Expect:
The wine tours are a fun mix of tasting, learning, and seeing, with plenty of photo opportunities en route. The fact that our guides are local winemakers, helps us get access to the best estates in Burgundy. During the course of the day, we will explain the importance of sustainable farming to Burgundy, as well as the considerable quality differences that exist between organic winemaking, and 'traditional' farming. It is a little known fact that the three most important estates in Burgundy are all organic and biodynamic.
outline of itinerary:
Our tours start at 09.30 at Les Deux Chèvres in Gevrey-Chambertin. You will meet with local winemakers Marina, Camille, or Gary, and enjoy a 20 minute introduction to Burgundy and its wines. From here, you'll head to the first tasting in the vines and a second tasting with a winemaker in the village. From Gevrey, we will take you to see some spectacular views of the village and the start of the Grand Cru vineyards of the Côte de Nuits. We will then proceed through natural forest over the Côte, to the Hill of Vergy, the spiritual home of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Lunch will be in the hills, surrounded by beautiful views, and either a picnic with some of the wines experienced during the morning or at a good village bistro. The afternoon will include a second Domaine tasting in Nuits St Georges or another village along the Côte, and a further vineyard tasting in either Vosne Romanee or Vougeot. You will be exploring the most attractive scenery of the Côte de Nuits and obtaining a full appreciation of what makes fine Burgundy wine so much in demand. The day will end back at Les Deux Chèvres, with a white wine tasting accompanied by Jolanta's freshly made gougères.
Difference between half and full day tours:
A full day will take in four tastings, two of which will be in the vines, where you will taste the wine from the particular plot where you are standing, and two Domaine tastings. A half day will include one vineyard tasting and one Domaine tasting. Weather permitting, the full day tour includes a picnic on the hill of Vergy with magnificent views of the surrounding scenery, or lunch in a country restaurant.
Transport is in our Land Rover Defender, which gives us access to every vineyard and photo opportunity that we want to share with you.
A full day tour is €195 per person and a picnic lunch is included (a restaurant lunch will be an additional cost). A half day tour is €95 per person and does not include lunch.
