Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in the morning near the train station in Dijon and take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan. Then, head off into rural Burgundy where lush vineyards line the rolling hillsides. Along the way, admire sweeping views over the Corton Grand Cru region in beautiful Cte de Beaune.

First, explore the pretty town of Beaune as your guide sheds light on the regions winemaking traditions and history. Stroll along winding, cobbled streets where life ticks past at a relaxing pace, and soak up the atmosphere in this impossibly beautiful corner of central France.

Next, visit the cellars of a local boutique winery, where a variety of vintages lie slowly maturing in gigantic oak barrels. Sample some of the delicate Premier Cru and Grand Cru red and white wines in production at the winery, and gain insight into the complex flavors in your glass.

    Me and my family, eight of us, traveling from San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and NYC agreed to meet up in Dijon, on our way to a wedding in Florence. We decided that a Burgundy wine tour would be the perfect kick off to our journey. The venue, private van and choice of itinerary from Authentica we’re perfect. Our driver and tour guide, Thomas Tracy, tied it all together for us. From his polyglot language ability to his prior experience as an investment banker and wine merchant, he was able to give us the whole picture, from the early days of the region to now. We appreciated his humor and relatability. Everyone agreed that we had a perfect day and came away confident that we could order a good bottle Burgundy, red or white, and know what we were talking about.

    Fabulous small group tour with 2 quality tastings included. To drive in amongst the vineyards was fantastic. We had a lovely lunch in Beaune and a good wander through the historic village. Very knowledgeable and informative guide spoke English well and made the day alot of fun.

    Thoroughly impressed by our warm, kind, and funny guide Jeremy. Our pickup was timely, and we received a very informative insight on the history and culture of wine making from a guide who participates in producing these fine wines personally! The tasting were an education as well, demonstrating the different qualities in each of the regions wines. We would do it again!

    A delightful trip to the beautiful wine country of Bourgogne. Our tour guide Romain was witty, enthusiastic and entertaining. His knowledge of the history and techniques was excellent. We enjoyed the educational aspect as well as the indigent wines we sampled. Thoroughly recommended for wine novices and afficionados alike.

    Excellent tour if you want to see the highlights of Burgundy: from mustard to vineyards/wine, including all the fantastic sights surrounding the area. It was a very well-planned tour with an extremely passionate and experienced guide tour, who was very friendly! Thank you, Romain, for the guidance and such a fun day out. Highly recommend this tour, when in Burgundy it’s a must :)

    This is an absolute MUST DO! Wonderful experience -didnt realise that there was so much to producing a bottle of wine in Burgundy! Our lovely guide Ann is like a walking encyclopaedia . She was brilliant- she must be exhausted at the end of her tours- the knowledge just pours out of her. Fabulous to see the villages and vineyards that you've heard of and seen only on wine bottles previously. Time spend in Beaune was enough to make us want to return for more! Would highly recommend Authentica Tours. Emmanuel and Nicholas very helpful and professional. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
