We were picked up at 9:30 as scheduled in front of the tourist office. It happened that nobody else other than my wife and I had booked this tour. Ava, our tour guide was excellent. She has tons of wine knowledge and did not hesitate sharing that with us. We visited a couple of wine makers and walked the famous vineyards. She suggested a lunch place that was very good for the hour we were not together in the center of Beaune. I bought some wine to be shipped - although I have not heard from the shipping company that was supposed to contact me yet! The most important factor is wine selection in Burgundy is “the map”! Have the map of vineyards handy when selecting your Pino. Unlike Napa that is equipped with irrigation system Burgundy relies exclusively on natural climate conditions. Check your years yo make sure too much rain did not make it a bad year!

Now hooked on Burgundy wine!

Wonderful tour. Vineyards, learning experience, tastings and company. Highly recommended. We had a wonderful day - the weather was also great. Managed to choose one of the three weeks where the vines are harvested and grapes collected - so loads of activity on the plots - and able to taste grapes and final wines.

Excellent, once in a lifetime experience!

We so enjoyed our full day wine tour of the Burgundy! Our guide, Ava, was so knowledgeable and friendly, it was so refreshing to be educated and guided by someone who clearly loves her job. We loved how the day was sculpted: visits to legendary vineyards, tastings, castles, etc - it was just right! I will be recommending this tour to friends and hope to book it in the future when I return with a tour group.
