Understanding Burgundy

Visit & Wine tour

Come on and visit the Corton hill in our 1975 VW Camper van and (re)discover what has made Burgundy wines so special and unique.

On the tour you'll get to discover fascinating insight and anecdotes on Burgundy like why many villages have a two-part name or the difference between coloured varnished roof tiles and black ones. Find out about the use of single grape varieties and the influence of the Cistercians.

During wine tasting sessions and rest periods, detailed and historically accurate information will be provided to enhance your Burgundy wine knowledge.

Immersed in Burgundy terroir for over two hours, the happy few will have acquired sufficient knowledge to explore further into the mysteries of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with the winemakers. 

Cost : starting from 79 euros for 2 hours and 2 wines tasted.

Thanks to our partnership network we also offer a range of activities: wine estate visits, oenology, or a flight over the vineyards in helicopter or hot air balloon.
