Started in 2003, Burgundy Discovery, offers personal, small group wine tasting tours, in English, to carefully selected wine cellars and vineyards in Burgundy that are not always accessible to the public. We take you to meet independent, family winegrowers typical to Burgundy. We visit their ancient cellars, taste their wonderful wines and explore world-famous vineyards as wine-lists come alive! Tours are informal, informative and fun. Join us in a Burgundy Discovery wine tour and share our deep passion for Burgundy and our wines.

Robert was our guide for two gorgeous days in Burgundy - we opted for the Hidden Secrets and Grand Gourmet Tour. Both were excellent! On our Hidden Secrets tour we were able to meet directly with the winemakers. Robert's Land Rover was extremely comfortable for our family of 4. Robert was accommodating, kind and has a wealth of knowledge of... More

My friend and I were in Beaune in late July and I had prearranged the Hidden Secrets tour with Burgundy Discovery. Robert and Joy's knowledge of the Burgundy region seemed encyclopedic - I'm fairly knowledgeable of Burgundy wines (or at least I thought I was!) Robert made a quick assessment of our knowledge by asking a couple of simple questions... More

We spent 16 days in France, and this was honestly the best thing we did in France. Not kidding either. Our tour guide was Pat and he was great, our group was a fun one to get along with. The places we stopped at were all fun and different to experience. We went from a fancier chateau style cellar to... More

With just a few days to spend in the region, as well as it being my first time in Burgundy, I booked this tour hoping to get an overall and solid sense of the region in a short time frame. The Grand Gourmet Tour certainly delivered that. Patrick was the consummate professional as well as charming tour guide, who was... More

Our wine tour through the Beaune - Burgundy region of France ended up being the highlight of our entire trip. From the day's weather to the most knowledgable and gracious wine guide (Patrick), to the vintners, and the host of other people of Beaune who were so very kind throughout our tour. We feel very privileged to have had the... More

Robert & Joy were fantastic from the minute we were picked up in a new air conditioned range rover until when we were dropped home more than an hour longer than we paid for. There were only 6 of us in the group over 2 cars. We visited 3 producers and it was obvious that there was a great mutual... More

Rob and Joy Pygott introduced us to the Burgundy wine region by picking us up promptly at our Beaune hotel. With maps and expertise they conducted four couples in two vehicles to high vistas and low cellars, explaining the history, geology, growing and wine making process.A welcome respite was the delightful lunch they arranged which was included as part of...

For a person who does not drink wine, this might come as a very strange review on wine tours. When my boyfriend booked this Hidden Secrets tour, I was a bit unsure... afterall I don't even drink wine! But that one day tour is excellent and it has been a great experience for me to learn about Burgundy wines from... More

Burgundy Discovery Tours is the perfect way to see this unique wine area in France. We were part of a small group with Joy and Robert as our very knowledgeable guides. We chose the hidden secrets tour and really enjoyed the small producers we visited. The wine was superb! Lunch was also delicious (included in the tour price). One of... More
