What people are saying about Beaune
This wine tour was an absolute delight! My wife and I love wine from Burgundy, so the opportunity to tour and taste was something we couldn't miss. Our guide, Antonin, was absolutely phenomenal! His knowledge of wine and of Burgundy in particular is extremely nuanced - he explained to us how the region is organized, how to interpret Burgundy wine labels, highlighted major differences between vineyards/villages in terms of wine taste/terroir, and much more. During the tastings with Antonin, discussing the nose, bouquet, and the wine's development was so much fun - I still remember nailing down descriptions of particular notes we were all picking up, sharing stories, and having lots of laughs. My wife and I both felt as though all three of us had been friends for a long time even though we had just met. The tours themselves were beautiful and fascinating - the guides were very kind! The tastings were very generous - we must have tasted 20 wines, ranging from villages to grand cru!
Despite a minor hiccup with our meeting point (apparently there are 2 Tourist Offices in Baune) our guide took the time to locate us and picked us up in a comfortable Mercedes van for our tour. There were a total of four of us on the tour, my wife and I and another couple so a nice small group. Our guide was Sonia who was an amazing host. While touring the Cote du Beaune and Cote du Nuit regions she educated us on the what makes Burgandy wines special such as the importance of terrior, climate and the appellation. We toured and viewed the finest vinyards in the region and also in the world. We stopped for 2 extensive tastings one in the late AM and one in the PM with lunch and a tour of Clos de Vougeot in between. During the tastings Sonia showed us the proper techniques to evaluate wines examining color, aromas, and flavours. You have the chance to purchase wines at both tastings. I would definately recommend this tour and guide, it was a great and memorable experience.
Our guide Dylan was great. He knew all about the burgundy wines and wine making. He was very professional, told loads on the history of the region, of the local wine making, and the wines. So I could actually navigate in the burgundy wines after that. And he was fun, 5 hours with him went in a jiffy. It was really nice, to learn the key stuff about burgundy wines. He helped choosing wine after tasting, too. Which was quite helpful. I truly recommend the tour.
Had a great time learning about the different wines of the burgundy region. Thomas was a fantastic, knowledgeable, and very funny guide for the tour. He kept the experience interesting and was delightful to have as a guide. It was nice to explore the area by van. One hour of visiting Beaune on our own. Sampled probably 5 different wines. Had one other couple in the group, so the personalization was nice. Would definitely recommend this.
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.
