...." One can’t get a better tour of Burgundy than with Sue. Informative is an understatement. Not only does she share her vast knowledge of wine & food with you, but also her favourite places….this is about as personal as it gets…..!! Liz N, Franklin, Wisconsin "  

Why not enjoy a fun & informative one-day Burgundy wine tour with my boutique wine tour company Burgundy on a Plate!  In my 10th season, I work exclusively with carefully selected cellars offering private tasting experiences for my clients.  Enjoy a slice of Burgundy life, meeting the growers in their cellars, exploring famous vineyards & villages & mastering the complexities of the Burgundy wine region in a style easy to assimilate!  For the foodies amongst you, why not pair your wine tour day with some cheese tasting, maybe try a truffle hunt in the Burgundian countryside with a dog and his master or get creative on an exclusive cooking & wine day?  

Join in as part of a very small group of no more than 6, or opt for an exclusively private tour.  Departure point is from your hotel in or close to Beaune or from Beaune station. There are no set tours as each tour is organized individually by your English bilingual driver/wine guide & Burgundy food & wine specialist. 

All prices stated include an excellent three-course lunch, (exclusive of drinks with lunch)
