before going on to the renowned village of Puligny Montrachet. Here you will

a superb lunch out on the terrace of a 1* Michelin restaurant. Take a break
from tasting on a spectacular drive up into Hautes Cotes de Beaune where you

our last event of the day - a further wine tasting, visit to a pottery or a guided
visit to the 15C Chateau de la Rochepot.

Day 6 - Market Day in Beaune. Meander around Beaune’s wonderful market,
full of colourful vegetables and fruits, delicious cheeses, olives and pates.
There will be a visit to the mustard museum for those interested. After lunch
we go cheese tasting in a farm in the hills and taste cheeses with wine in their
300 year old farmhouse. We return to Beaune to get ready for our last night

Policies & Restrictions


Our restrictions are few! No pets, no smoking in any of the venues or in the bus - but you can sneak a cigarette outside in the vineyards! We would prefer not to take minors under the age of 14 because of the nature of the tour, but we have taken the occasional baby around the vineyards!

Here's just a few

Many thanks for all your help during our ( too brief ) stay . We are all agreed that you got it spot on with our visit , mixing the size, variety and quality of visits/wine tasting perfectly.. Certainly your reputation seems very good as they all seemed happy to see you and of course that makes the visits much more personal and thus enjoyable. All in all great fun and much enjoyed by us all. David Sibree for the Benfield Group, UK

We can't stop talking about what a great time we had with you in Burgundy. As Rich said, this weekend we shared a fabulous dinner with our friends and dazzled them with our new found knowledge of wines and food. The prior weekend, we went to a party where I brought a platter with Epoisse cheese and french bread. It was devoured quickly! Thanks again for your warmth and hospitality. ……..Patti & Richard Eisenberg ��' USA

The two days that we spent with you in December - one day for a wine tour and one day for the truffle hunt were exceptional. The wine tour was "THE REAL THING", talking and tasting with the actual winemakers in small historic cellars. It was delightful and we were so pleased that the tastings were not the commercial kind open to everyone. You were obviously respected by the wine makers we visited and the truffle hunt was not only entertaining, but also very educational. We would take both tours again and would recommend them to anyone wanting to get a true insider's view of Burgundy.
Sue and Bob Guthrie ��' USA

Thank you for a wonderful tour of Burgundy. As Ralph and I recount the experiences we feel as though we truly enjoyed the best of Burgundy…..We look forward to returning with our children and introducing them to Burgundian hospitality.. Jenni del Rio - USA
