Burgundy Walking Tour — Trip Overview
"A Wine Lover's Walk"

Enjoy easy walks amongst the endless vineyards of full-bodied reds and supple white wines, surrounded by the green rolling hills, wooded slopes & grazing Charolais cattle of a bountiful and generous land; images evoked when one thinks of Burgundy.
Burgundians are also faithful to the traditions of earlier generations with a warm and generous hospitality--a guest here eats and drinks very well indeed, thus bringing honor to the host's table. In the spirit of the local traditions of hospitality, we bring you the best of Burgundy.

Days 1-2: Le Gran Cru

Daily walks from one world renowned wine producer to the next. Stop and raise a glass a dark cool wine cellar; such as the 12th-c Chateau du Clos de Vougeot. Tour the influential Abbey Cîteaux and discover tiny villages associated closer to Napoléon than to wine.

Days 3-4: Delicious Liqueurs and Ancient Cultures

Emerge into a terrain separated by vast fields of sunflower, grain and colzat flowers creating a blazing golden hue while forest provide contrast in color and relief. Learn about the ancient Gallo-Roman culture and pause to taste the delicious fruit liqueurs made from local berries.

Days 5-7: Beaune to Cluny Abbey

Meanders through forests and fields to Beaune, wine capital of Burgundy. Enjoy a private tour of the city and the traditional market day. Saone River Valley and the nearby hills of the Cote Chalonnaise inspire contemplation. Soon robust red wine country and soon after, viola, the land of superlative whites. Then enjoy Cluny and the Benedictine Abbey of A.D. 909, once the grandest, most prestigious monastic institution in Europe
