Wine Tours of Burgundy
Robin Garr along with French Wine Explorers has arranged a special Terroirs of Burgundy tour enjoying VIP
winery visits, comfortable accommodations, and gourmet Burgundian meals. Restaurants and accommodations
have been chosen for their attractive quality-price ratio favoring the type of bistros and country inns that the
French people themselves choose.
The tour dates are July 2-7, 2007 and the tour is strictly limited to 16 participants. Highlights of the itinerary on
day one include a tour and tasting at Domaine Bertagna in Nuits St. Georges, a guided tour of the ancient Clos
de Vougeot Chateau with is massive 13th century wine presses, and a walking tour through the Grand Cru vineyards
of Vosne-Romanee including Romanee-Conti and La Tache. On day two the group heads to the Maconnais
where top producers will be visited including Domaine de la Bongran, Verget or Domaine Ferret. On the
third day, the charming city of Beaune will be explored with a visit to the Hospices de Beaune. Wineries in
Puligny and Chassagne-Montrachet, Meursault and Volnay targeting producers at the level of Bernard Morey
will be included. On day four the sub regions of Burgundy will be visited including the Cote Chalonnais, Givry,
Mercurey and Rully. Day five the group will return to the Cote de Nuits for additional
visits to top producers. Plans are to meet up with Allen Meadows (aka Burghound)
who will add his take on Burgundy over lunch one day.
