A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. Taste the terroir: Thanks to a high-quality reputation and small-scale production, some Burgundies are in such high demand that they rank amongst the most expensive wines in the world.
  • 2. Rich, lively history: Burgundy wasn't considered part of France until the 18th century and has therefore been influenced by cultures spanning from the Celts to the Romans and of course the Burgundonians, a Scandinavian clan.
  • 3. l'arte de Vivre: In Burgundy, as with the rest of France, food and wine are considered art forms and mealtime is the communal medium. Prepare to settle in for pure indulgence.
  • 4. In-the-field expertise: from sharing the regions' uniqueness to orchestrating seamless group dynamics, our guides keep their eyes on the details, ensuring your vacation is truly the trip of a lifetime.
