Tour type: Private , Duration: 1

Product ID: 6509
Description

After collection from your hotel we will drive into the vineyards while you are given a comprehensive introduction to the wines of Burgundy from your expert guide. By the time we arrive at the first winery you will have grasped the basics and be ready for your first tasting. You will then be initiated into how to taste the wine and meet your first local, probably the person who has actually made the very wine you are going to taste. There, the mystery of Burgundy will unfold before you and make you wonder how you ever thought it was so complicated.
Emerging from the underground cellar, we will then proceed to a second cellar for a ‘dégustation’ where you will be able to taste like a pro. We will now demystify the wine labels so that you will be able to read and understand them when you are back home.
During a leisurely Burgundian lunch you will be able to put into practice everything you have learnt during the morning by selecting a wine from the extensive wine list.
Relax after your lunch as you are driven through the vineyards, marvelling how the village names read...

Relax after your lunch as you are driven through the vineyards, marvelling how the village names read just the like the wine list you studied at lunchtime. We will stop and examine the vines, discuss how they differ from your country and examine the ‘terroir’ which makes each wine so different even though they all come from the same grapes.
Our final stop of the day will be at another winery for a wine tasting which will consolidate everything you have learnt today.

Tracy Thurling

Burgundy first stole my heart when I worked on board the luxury hotel barges in 1991. Now, living amongst the vineyards with my young family I have a real affinity with Burgundy as I am able to watch the vines growing during the passing seasons from the comfort of my own home. Not that the region is only about wine, with many Michelin restaurants in the area and a wealth of UNESCO sites we are never short of something to do. Fully registered with ATOUT France to provide transport I am also the holder of the prestigious label "Vignobles et Découvertes" awarded jointly by the Chamber of Commerce and the French Tourist Board. As the only specialist provider in Beaune of totally private tours contact me now to create your dream tour.
