Enjoy a Private Burgundy wine tour from Paris. Your private Burgundy tour begins with a Paris hotel or apartment pickup by your driver guide. The day can be customized but we suggest driving first to Beaune, an ancient city with fabulous architecture and certainly the capital of the Burgundy wines.
The Hotel-Dieu in Beaune is Burgundian-Flemish art. The Hotel-Dieu has colored glazed tiles housing the famous polyptych of the Last Judgment, by Rogier van der Weyden.
Next will be a visit to the 'Patriarche' wine cellars (or similar), dating from the 13th-14th century. There, you will be able to taste about 13 different kinds of wine or do wine tasting in the little town of Meursault. The white wines are considered the best in the world (having a taste of hazelnut while dry and mellow at the same time).
You can have lunch in the town of Pommard, a famous name linked to the tradition of wine-making. The village huddles tightly around its square bell-towered church as if to leave room for the vines! Appreciated by such great men such as Victor Hugo, the wines of Pommard are outstanding.
Your private Burgundy tour will include a visit to a small producer in Pommard (or on the 'Route des Grands Crus').
The private tour will continue through the vineyards on the 'Great Vintage wines road' to the Clos de Vougeot where you will be able to tour the Clos de Vougeot, built by Cistercian monks in the 12th century. The Clos de Vougeot is surrounded by vineyards and has prestigious cellars and a collection of winepresses from the Middle Ages.
Available daily, the tour is 13 hours in duration.
Private tour prices don't include tastings, meals, entrance fees to the museums, gardens and monuments
