I have been working in the wine industry a long time, and I learnt more in a day than I have with many years experience. Cristina was very professional and very interesting! I could've listened to her speak all day. We began the day with a lesson, a very detailed explanation of soils, site situation, viticulture and winemaking for my winemaker friend. As we travelled to the vineyard sites, we got to see and understand what Burgundy is about. We went to an amazing producer in Saint-Aubin and my eyes were opened to a special region and wines that I wouldn't normally get to taste. Cristina's recommendations for lunch were spot on, we went to an outstanding restaurant in Pommard and had one of our best meals.
She is very knowledgeable about Beaune, so we learnt of some great spots for further dining, wine shopping and great cheese! We went to Volnay in the afternoon, and had another amazing tasting followed by a very interesting tour at Chateau de Clos Vougeot. To finish, a wonderful glass of Pinot Noir in the vines with the sun shining. We learnt so much during our day with Cristina, and I feel we were exposed to the true essence of Burgundy. It is clear that she is passionate about Burgundy, and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone...wine industry or not!
