We absolutely enjoyed the charm tour with Valentin! Even though the weather was not ideal, the tour was a full success!

Nick blew me away with his deep understanding of everything wine. He is a passionate local who generously educated our group on this world class wine region. The pace was spot on too. Thanks for your hospitality Nick. See you for a semillion in the Hunter Valley, Australia!

We booked a half-day tour but they upgraded us to a full-day tour at the same price. We learned so much about Burgundy wines and tasted close to 10 wines, including a few that were really good plus a Nuits-Saint-Georges that was out of this world. Super knowledgeable guide, comfortable van. Highly recommended!

Thank you for your kind review! We really tasted lot of good wines during this tour. Besides, you got to discover the two best wine growing areas of Burgundy: Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune within a day. Hope you will come and visit again and maybe this time emphasize on our Pinot Noir paradise. Valentin, vinegrower More

We went on a half-day tour. We went to one wine cellar and visited few vineyards. Sophie, our guide, is very knowledgable, passionate and helpful. She brought us to vineyards and explained very carefully how the grapes are cultivated. We learnt a lot. I wish I joined the whole-day tour, so I could experience more wine from different wine cellars.... More

Very enjoyable. Our guide, Sophie, was fantastic and extremely knowledgable. Went to a charming town, Fixin, with six great wines to taste accompanied by cheeses and chocolate. Then we saw some vineyards and went to the place where the monks began the vinification of Burgundy. Very worth it
