French, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese
9.30 am Nowadays, the vineyards around Dijon are a little harder to find, but they flourished up until the nineteenth century, when urbanisation took hold. This tour takes you down memory lane to explore the city's rich wine-growing past.
10.30 am Coach leaves for Chenôve and a tour of the Dukes of Burgundy wine presses in the heart of the old market town. Entirely rebuilt in 1400, the presses were the focus of an ongoing construction project that lasted many centuries, and were in constant use until 1926! Wine presses with counterweights were once widespread, but the particularly impressive Chenôve presses are the only two that remain.
12.00 pm Lunch in the Côte de Nuits.
1.30 pm Continue along the Grands Crus Wine Trail.
The Côte de Nuits is today known as the “Champs-Elysées” of Burgundy for its Grands Crus red wines. Uncover the mysteries of French wine-growing, from appellations to climats and terroirs!
2.30 pm Tour of the Château du Clos de Vougeot, the ancient winery of the Cistercian monks and current headquarters of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin (Order of the Knights of Tastevin), comprising both luxury living quarters and a wine-making complex.
4.00 pm Discover the art of wine tasting in one of the wine cellars of the Côte de Nuits. Introduction to the local wine-growing area and guided tasting of a number of different wines.
