After pick up from your accommodation in Beaune, we start the day with a private guided visit of Château du Clos Vougeot. Historical home to the wines of Burgundy since the monks established it in the 12th century, this Renaissance chateau was restored in the 19th century. See the giant wine presses used by the Cistercian monks and marvel at the remarkable engineering process of the Middle Ages.
We then have a private wine tasting in boutique winery in the Cote de Nuits followed by lunch in a typical regional restaurant. Alternatively you may prefer a wine tasting lunch at a local vineyard with the opportunity to taste up to five Grand Cru wines with your lunch
A stroll past the famous vineyards of Romanée Conti will help settle our lunch while we examine the vines and the ‘terroir’ of this famous wine making region. A second visit to a Cote de Nuits cellar for a private wine tasting will round of the day and whet our appetites for the evening.
