What people are saying about Dijon
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!
The guide was a very knowledgeable sommelier who spoke totally clear English. His prepared remarks and the tour locations were all very interesting and informative. The van was modern and comfortable and had good air conditioning. There were 8 people on our tour, which allowed us to ask many questions. The guide had no trouble understanding our questions and provided thorough answers. The tasting included two chardonnays and four pinot noirs that gave us a good exposure to Burgundy wines.
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.
Sebastian has a very deep knowledge of Burgundy wines. We learned so much on the day about the soils and growing conditions and this made the tasting experience so much more meaningful. We came away from the experience with some beginner knowledge of Burgundy wines as well as an appreciation of how much more there is to learn. I can really recommended this tour if you’re in Burgundy.
