I booked this wine tour purely based on reviews, for a surprise anniversary trip. Arranging the tour was simple as I booked directly through Robert and Joy, the couple who manage Burgundy Discovery. It's safe to say we weren't disappointed. Robert picked us and another couple up promptly from our hotel reception and we were straight on the road. Whilst... More

My sister and I enjoyed a fabulous wine tour given by Patrick. We had a full day of learning about the beautiful Burgundy wine region and tasted some of the finest wine in the area. In addition we enjoyed an upscale lunch. We can't say enough about this wine tour and especially our guide, Patrick.

My best friends and I did two-day tour with Joy and Robert two weeks ago. We are all wine lovers with very little knowledge of Burgundy wines. This tour was very educational and we learned a lot and enjoyed every minute of it. They provided excellent explanation of the region and answered all our questions. We tasted great variety of...

My husband, son and I did this tour and it was one of our holiday highlights. It was expensive but worth every penny. We were picked up at our hotel in Beaune by Patrick, driven through some beautiful scenery and villages to reach the vineyards. When we arrived at the wineries, we had very interesting lessons on wine-making, understanding what... More

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
