Trip Summary To Top
This is the tour for those on a tighter budget who would like a simple, short break to enjoy Burgundy wines and the city of Dijon; however, in common with all Grape Escapes tours, we don’t skimp on quality just because it is inexpensive.
On day one, your tour will start with an introductory tasting session of three Burgundian wines, each made from one of three permissible grape varieties in Burgundy (Aligote, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir).
You will build on your newfound knowledge on day two, where you will meet your English-speaking driver/guide at a central departure point within walking distance of your hotel, for a half day transported and guided tour of the vineyards of the Côte de Nuits, experiencing the range of wines this prestigious region has to offer.
You will travel along the famous Route des Grands Crus, passing through such legendry vineyards as Romanée Conti, Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, and Echezeaux. Your guide will make a stop amongst the vines, to explain all about the fascinating work that is undertaken in the vineyards. You will then enjoy a tasting of white wines and Pinot Noirs in a traditional cellar accompanied by Gougères (a savoury choux pastry, which is a traditional Burgundian appetiser). In addition, you will stop at an estate in Gevrey-Chambertin dating back several generations. Here you will visit the cellars and see the wine ageing in oak barrels as well as a visit to the vintage room. The visit will conclude with a tasting of several of the Pinot Noirs produced by this estate. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back in the centre of Dijon.
