Our trip to France in September, 2014, was centered around our time in Burgundy. We took the full day tour of the Cote d'Or with Patrick, and it was outstanding. We toured and tasted at three wineries (all top quality) and visited the premier vineyards of the region. The history, vineyard details and knowledge of the wines that Patrick explained... More

My wife and I took the Grand Premier one-day tour with Rob and Joy in late September 2014. We are both wine lovers who have always been puzzled but intrigued by Burgundy, so we thought a more structured approach to exploring the region might be helpful. Rob and Joy didn't disappoint. The tour was first-rate. Our guides provided excellent explanations... More

As Kiwis with a reasonable knowledge of NZ wine and absolute dirth of knowledge of French wine, we decided to book a tasting tour with Burgundy Discovery to get the lie of the land in the Cote d'Or. We had a similar wine tour in Umbria (Monte Falco) 2 years previously and Burgundy Discovery matched that excellent experience. It was... More

We had a wonderful wine tour led by Patrick. He took us to some amazing wineries and was very informative about the wine making process, the vineyards, and tasting notes. Our group had a great time tasting and loved meeting all the wine makers. Patrick is also a very good photographer! I highly recommend this tour group!.

We went on tour with whole family: my husband, I and our 8 year old daughter. We had private tour from 9 till 4. We were afraid that our 8 year old would be bored because of her age. But she had fun too. Our guide was very caring and gave us a lot of interesting information about wines and... More

Burgundy Discovery is really Rob and Joy Pigott, who are remarkably knowledgable about the wines and the vinyards. We were there during the harvest, and through their relationships, we were able to see behind the scenes as the grapes were brought in. They are British, so there is no language barrier. Ours was an all-da tour that took us to... More

Great experience with Patrick, he was very well organised and accommodating, which afforded the chance to visit three wineries, sample their wines and meet their winemakers, enjoy a spectacular lunch and even spend some time in the late afternoon exploring the town of Beaune before taking the fast train back to Paris. Expensive but worthwhile. A great introduction to the... More

We did the two-day wine tour which included Hidden Secrets and the Premier and Grand Cru vineyards with another couple (our friends). I cannot say enough great things about Robert and Joy and this tour package. Robert picked us up from the train station at 9:15 am and we started the tour right away. He and Joy are both extremely...

This was one of the highlights in our 2 week trip through France. Robert and Joy are very nice, and we learned a lot on this tour. We enjoyed all of the tastings and a great lunch. We highly recommend it. We did the Grand Premier Tour and it was well worth the cost.

There's a reason this is the #1 attraction for Beaune. Robert & Joy provide an education days-worth of wine touring and tasting in the close vicinity of Beaune that provides you with an opportunity to taste wines from producers according to your package (small or large). In the 2 days we toured with them our minds were filled with endless... More
