What people are saying about Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

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!

Excellent tour with Cedric !!! We enjoy every moment.. Cedric explained us everything about Bourgogne wines while we rode our bikes and enjoyed the beautiful landscapes . We tasted good wines . For sure I’ll recommend this tour to ours friends. Good value for money!
