Vineyard Trail 7 Night / 8 Days Ref# C151-LU

From 1,250 €pp

Luxe tour - accommodation in 3-star hotels and gourmet dinners

Two of the most famous vineyards worldwide are located to the south of Dijon :
- the Cote de Nuits, from Chenove to Corgoloin, that produces powerful red wines
- the Cote de Beaune, from Aloxe Corton to Santenay, renowned for its delicate red wines and its full-bodied flavoured white wines

Since the 3rd century B.C., the vineyards growing along the slopes have provided the most noble vintages, and at the heights of the hills are produced the Hautes Cotes. Long-time properties of the dukes of Bourgogne, La Cote stands today as witness to the past. Chapels, chateaux and old, glazed-roof villages spot the vineyards one after another. Two remarkable sites worth visiting are Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, and Beaune, the vineyard's capital.

This tour is an invitation to discover these climates (small plots producing the best vintage wines) and to perfect your enological geography !
