    Welcome to Burgundy

    Your guides will greet you at the train station in Beaune where the adventure begins. Nestled inside massive 14th-century ramparts, this medieval town is the wine capital of Burgundy, and our first lunch of the week is right in Beaune’s lively town square. Have your first taste of classic brasserie-style Burgundian dishes and crisp Chardonnays from the wine villages that surround us. Our first scenic spin through the Côte de Beaune takes us through classic Burgundian villages like Pommard, Nantoux, and Savigny-lès-Beaune. Tonight, your guides will stroll with you to the home of our friend, chef Adeline, for an intimate evening of food and wine.

Cycle through Aloxe-Corton and Comblanchien, each displaying exquisite examples of Burgundian tiled roofs and villages that barely survived WWII. Then spin past the exclusive vineyards of Romanée-Conti, stopping to visit the famous Clos de Vougeot estate, birthplace of Burgundian wines.
