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.

We had a car so we decided to drive the wine tour route ourselves as don't like tours with people i don't know. This way you do the wineries you want to do. Taste and go to the next place and taste again. We did this for 6 or 7 hours. One of the best days for sure. Bought over... 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

My wife and I did the Hidden Gems tour with Joy and Robert. This was the most memorable days of our 20 day trip. Joy and Robert were knowledgeable, the wine fantastic, and lunch terrific. We went with 2 other couples who were very nice and good company for the day's tour. If you are visiting Burgundy, you must do... More

Our day with Robert was the most enjoyable and educational (much less the best tastings and lunch) day of our nine day visit to France. The price was NOT cheap; but MORE than worth it. Steve and Mary Skarda - Mandeville, LA

Went 2 years ago and still remember the great experience and knowledge I was able to obtain. When you go to France don't just look at the Eiffel Tower go and se the country

Knowledgeable guiding, comfortable transport and nice company with a couple from Nevada. Well varied selection of wineries, we especially liked the visit at Michel Prunier's and meeting the man himself. Very nice lunch at the gorgeous Bistrot du bord de l'eau. Seats at the best table with excellent service, food and wine.

The best part of our recent trip to France was the wine tour we experienced with Robert and Joy Pygott in Beaune. The history, geography, and culture of the wines that can be called Burgundy were the highlights of the tour even though we highly enjoyed the visits and tastings at four wineries as well. After I mentioned that I... More
