Today your private Burgundy tour will focus on Côte de Beaune. You will start the morning with a tour of the Hospices de Beaune, a famous Beaune landmark. Adorned by colorful diamond-patterned tiles, the Hospices de Beaune was founded in 1443 as a charitable hospital. The original building, Hôtel Dieu, is now a museum, which you can visit on your tour.
Your guide will have suggestions for lunch. Later you will explore the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. The scenery here is spectacular: the villagers’ homes seem to cling precariously to the steep cliffs of Orches.
You will then visit to a winery for wine tasting in Savigny-les-Beaune, a small town producing mainly red wines, including 22 Premier Crus. You will next visit another winery in Meursault to enjoy some of the fine Chardonnays produced here.
Finally, your private tour of Cote de Beaune will take you to enjoy Chassagne Montrachet, called one of the “Big Three” white wine-producing villages in the Côtes de Beaune.
At the end of your Burgundy tour, you will be taken back to your hotel or to the train station, depending on your plans after your time with us. You may return to Paris via train. Our guide will assist you board the train in Burgundy.
