Meet your guide in the morning near the train station in Dijon and take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan. Then, head off into rural Burgundy — where lush vineyards line the rolling hillsides. Along the way, admire sweeping views over the Corton Grand Cru region in beautiful Côte de Beaune. First, explore the pretty town of Beaune as your guide sheds light on the region’s winemaking traditions and history. Stroll along winding, cobbled streets where life ticks past at a relaxing pace, and soak up the atmosphere in this impossibly beautiful corner of central France. Next, visit the cellars of a local boutique winery, where a variety of vintages lie slowly maturing in gigantic oak barrels. Sample some of the delicate Premier Cru and Grand Cru red and white wines in production at the winery, and gain insight into the complex flavors in your glass. Explore Beaune further at your leisure during free time, and maybe try other local produce such as blackcurrant liquor, spiced honey cake or aniseed candy. Perhaps visit La Moutarderie Fallot (own expense) — where delicious Burgundy mustard is made — and sample some of the diverse mustards in production. Then, return to your starting point in Dijon to conclude your tour.
