... or ...
Combine Wine and History in a unique way ! 
You have the choice between a pure Wine tour —either for beginners, advanced amateurs or connoisseurs— or a unique combination of 
Wine and History, according to your time and interest.

Thanks to her extensive knowledge, Beatrix can offer you a very special combined Wine & History tour, leading you through the discovery of Burgundy’s wines within their context, linking villages and vineyards, history, art and picturesque landscapes in an unforgettable way. 
But of course, you can also choose a guided Wine Tasting Tour!

Along with fascinating and detailed information, Beatrix will help you to  improve your understanding of the terroir, where soil, bedrock and minerals compose various geological settings bringing about subtle differences in the taste and aroma of wines. If you ever wished to taste and see, to learn on-site and to understand the ins and outs of viticulture, this could be 
the perfect experience to go for.  

Burgundy is divided into 5 wine regions:
Each village, bearing a famous name, produces its renowned wines. Here are but a few examples located on the famous Route des Grands Crus which leads through the viticultural area of the  ‘Côte d’Or’ —meaning the golden slopes!

Côte de Nuits:  grows almost exclusively red wines. 
You shall learn about one of then most                                                                                        ancient and prestigious vineyards      located in Gevrey-Chambertin: 
the Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, next to             the highly renowned Chambertin. 

                 Le Chambertin

Côte de Beaune: 
produces red and white wines.
Here you shall discover i. a. the golden 
triangle where some of Burgundy’s greatest 
white wines are produced: the villages of 
Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-
Montrachet and Meursault. 
Many consider the Montrachet as the 
greatest dry white wine on the world.
