Heart of Burgundy Fabulous Food & Wine Tour 2013   
5 days, from  €1,764.00 TTC                 3 days, from   €1,166.00 TTC
iscover the real Heart of Burgundy on our wonderful wine and gastronomy tour in the beautiful Côte d’Or. Because we are passionate about this historic and diverse wine region, we have created this special tour to
share the treasures of its ‘terroir’ from carefully selected cellars to delicious regional specialities, with you.
Visit celebrated wine villages famous for their red wines, like Vosne Romanée, Gevrey Chambertin, Chambolles Musigny. If white is more to your taste, the renowned villages of Meursault and Puligny Montrachet might sound familiar. Meet winegrowers in family owned domaines, visit a chateau estate and enjoy a leisurely tasting lunch in convivial surroundings.
Of course, this tour is not all about wine! We haven’t mentioned our visit to an artisan cheese maker and the fascinating tour of the mustard museum.
Is cassis simply blackcurrant liqueur? Have you tasted Jambon Persillé, Cassissine or Pain d’Epices? Anis de Flavigny or Gougeres?
And how much do you know about truffles? Mid September to mid December we taste
and learn about them.
If it’s there to taste – you’ll taste it with us!


Day 1 - Arrival day will include an introduction to wine tasting in Burgundy before a great first night dinner in an exceptional location. Day 2 takes us off to the medieval village of Flavigny sur Ozeraine where ‘Chocolat’ was filmed. We taste local bonbons and some wines from the Auxerrois. Lunch is in a Ferme Auberge run by a group of farmers’ wives using local produce. Burn off some calories with a walk around Flavigny’s ramparts. The stunning village and 12C castle in Chateauneuf en Auxois is on the menu for the afternoon. We return home via the picturesque Ouche Valley running alongside the Burgundy canal.
Day 3 – Your first tasting of the red wines of the Cotes de Nuits is in Nuits St Georges in a small family owned domaine. Lunch today is in Hautes Cotes de Nuits where hams are baked over the fire. A drive back through the vineyards takes us to meet our chef in his Beaune restaurant for a really fun, interactive cooking class. We return to his restaurant for a delicious meal that we might have helped to prepare!
Day 4 - Today it’s the turn of the Cote de Beaune. You will taste at a small family cellar in Meursault before going on to the renowned village of Puligny Montrachet. Here you will visit the cellar and vineyards of a well known winegrower. This is followed by a leisurely, informal tasting lunch in their restaurant. Take a break from tasting on a spectacular drive up into Hautes Cotes de Beaune where you will be entirely surrounded by vineyards. If time permits, you have a choice for our last event of the day – a further wine tasting or a visit to a pottery in one of the villages.
Day 5 – 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 a visit to the red fruits farm where berries are transformed by hand into a wealth of delicious products. The last night dinner is at a Michelin starred restaurant in wonderful surroundings. Day 6. Departure day and we take you back to Dijon station during the morning to fit in with your personal travel arrangements.
