L'Escargot de la Cote train or Bus 44

I am wondering if this little train is still in existence, or the bus 44. I will be staying in Dijon for 3 days and would love to see some of the country outside Dijon, and do some wine tasting if possible. I am not sure I want to do a full-day tour, so these options appeal to me. I realize I am getting this information from an old post, so any current information would be most helpful. I will not be driving, just using public transport.

you are better off renting a bike from beaune which is central and follow the vineyards "route"

the area is quite flat

do not stay too long on the route nationale 74 which is the main road from dijon to beaune via nuits saint georges

you may buy the book of sylvain pitiot "burgundy wines" at the atheneum of beaune to follow the vineyards route

do not go further than gevrey chambertin

treat yourself to tasting lunch in aloxe corton and meet comte senard

beware of the tourists traps when it come to wineries

Bus 44 still operates (1.5€) from Dijon to Beaune (and then you may rent a bike) but I'm not sure about l'Escargot, cannot find anything recent about it... Have fun!

you have a train leaving dijon which stops in the wine villages on the way to beaune

very unfrequent in the day

the railway stations are far from the villages,but the trains will take bicycles for free

avoid the main road "route nationale" 74 as it can be busy

get a map to ride on the vineyards roads
