What people are saying about Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

We had a lovely excursion to the vineyards of Bourgogne. Three completely different vineyards The largest was Jean Marc Brochet which produces 3.5 Million bottles each year in Bourgogne. The brand ambassador Sebastien was a wonderful host ! We also visited Domaine Bersan a vineyard with a maze of quaint wine cellars from the 14th century And last but not leas,, tasting of Cremants (the sparkling wines in France not from Champagne) in a cellar under the mountain Jean Phillipe is an energetic and helpful Parisian guide The small group setting allowed us all to get to know each other snd enjoy the company. Much preferred to a large impersonal tour bus

Our full day tour along the Burgundy Wine Route led from Dijon to Beaune with two tastings. Our tour guide, Antonin, was the perfect companion: He has a very nice, pleasant manner and a very in-depth knowledge of the growing areas and wines of Burgundy. So he was able to give valuable information to the connoisseurs in our small group. We learned a lot and had a lot of fun doing it. Absolutely recommendable!

A very pleasant day in addition to being instructive in the company of Thomas, a warm guide with in-depth expertise, and quickly knowing how to put all the members of the group at ease. We recommend without hesitation this activity of tasting high quality wines and exploring the route des grands crus. We thank Thomas once again for the good memories we will have on this day. Elsa and Pierre
