We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Fallot mustard mill. The staff were friendly and well informed, and the family, led by Marc Désarménien, did such a nice job of renovating the facility to accommodate tourists. The tour explains the history of mustard in France, and then explains how things have changed and the current process to make mustard in... More

This tour was well worth the visit to hear and see the history of mustard manufacturing - it is great to see how food actually gets made before it reaches our plate. The guide spoke in French - which is totally fine as we were in France with French tourists!! But she took the time out to explain to us... More

I love mustard, enough to make a slight detour while in Burgundy to check out a tour of La Moutarderie in Beaune and see how they make it. Now, it's not to say that this tour isn't interesting, because it is. I just expected it to be more of a tour where you're taken through the factory and you see... More

After reading other recent reviews maybe we got a 'bad' deal. There were few English speakers on our tour and the guide spoke most of the time in French, with a very brief explanation in English, she was also quite rude to us in the beginning and when a Frecnh speaking person asked a question she was rude to them...

This is the last working mustard mill in Burgaundy. In the old days, mustard was planted on the fields where brush had been cut for charcoal production as the plant grows well in such soil (potash-rich). However, as the need for charcoal diminished, the land sown with mustard did as well until Burgundy ceased to produce any local mustard seeds... More

We booked in the “sensations” tour online, which is the tour that takes you through the factory, where you can see the machine, workers and production line bottling of the mustards. It’s called sensations because of the smell and the mild stinging in your eyes when you walk through the factory =) The tour was very interesting and our guide... More

My wife and I took the museum tour while staying in Beaune. The tour was fine. It was a look at a lot of old mustard making equipment and some videos about production and history. There was also a hands on demo as we got to make our own mustard. At the end of the tour there was a tasting... More

We visited here as their brand (Fallot) is one of our favourite. We were lucky enough to have a tour with mainly English speakers so it was largely in English. The tour was OK, but as a huge group we were sent up to the factory floor (by lift) in two groups. We were in the leading group and we... More

I suppose the best that can be said is that it is a good break from the usual winery tours and at the end of the hour, you do learn something about making the famous Dijon mustard. Other reviewers have already gone into the details and some of the shortcomings of the tour so I won't go into that. Just... More

This was a pleasant overview of the history of mustard in Burgundy. A fair bit padded out with ponderous and silly video presentations. But the guide was very good and the tasting plate at the end was also interesting. It would be much better value if they combined both the old and new factories on the one tour instead of... More
