This well-run tour explores the original 13th-century cellars of Beaune's Notre-Dame basilica, where the Drouhin family has operated its wine business for four generations. Fascinating historical tidbits along the way are almost as good as the wine tasting itself.

Highlights include a close-up look at a working 16th-century wine press once used by local monks, and stories of WWII French Resistance leader Maurice Drouhin's escapades in eluding the Nazis after hiding his most precious vintages behind a hastily constructed false wall.
