The Vino Beano is excited to announce its wine tour of Burgundy, arguably the most sought after wine region in the world. Guided by our resident Master of Wine and Buyer - Robin Kick MW - you will explore the limestone-rich landscapes that create the chiselled Chardonnays of Chablis, before heading south to the Côte d’Or, the core of the Burgundy region.
This region's beauty, history and quality were recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 2015. Here, you will learn about some of the vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, before passing by several of the world’s most famous Burgundy Grand Cru vineyards.
From Savigny-lès-Beaune, in the northern Côte de Beaune, you will taste a number of different wines from the region that have been artisanally produced by a micro-négociant. We will visit the Château du Clos de Vougeot, the renowned and ancient centre for Cistercian monks who produced much of Burgundy’s wine during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The trip will continue in the southern Côte de Beaune, where we will discover the lesser known but equally delicious wines of Maranges. Over the final two days, you will taste your way through Pouilly-Fuissé and Macon - the most famous areas of the Maconnais region - before finishing in two of the most revered Beaujolais crus: Fleurie and Morgon Côte de Py.
We look forward to having you join us on this truly unforgettable and highly informative journey through the heart of Burgundy! To download a PDF copy of our Burgundy Tour Brochure, please use the following link:
