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.
