You will continue travelling through the region's charming villages to visit a family-run winery in the Côte de Beaune. Here you will have a full tour of the estate and cellars followed by tastings of at least five of the domaine’s wines including a Premier and Grand Cru.
You will have some free time for lunch in the picturesque town of Beaune. Your guide will suggest places to eat at and where best to try local and regional dishes. If you wish, you will also have time to independently visit Les Hospices de Beaune, which is home to the region’s annual wine auctions.
In the afternoon you will continue onto the Côte de Nuits, a tasting paradise for Pinot Noir lovers. Here, you will visit a second estate, for a full tour and tasting of wines in a different style to those sampled in the morning. At the end of the day, you will be dropped back in the centre of Dijon.

The visit will conclude with a three-course traditional lunch, during which you will have the unique opportunity to taste six Grand Cru wines, complemented further by comments from one the estate’s sommeliers.
