This tour was our first as wine novices. We only knew what the basic types of grapes were......until this trip and Christopher, our guide.
Since this was off-season, we were fortunate to have been the only two people on this tour. But there was no less attention to the quality of the explanation and the attention to detail in educating two amateurs. We understood enough about the history, the culture and the classification of the wines and the areas geology and the geography as we watched the vineyard workers burn the winter foliage preparing for the spring.
I cannot appreciate enough the time that Christopher took and the attention to his explanation. As a native of the area he had personal knowledge of the region. His English was very good and he truly made a personal effort to make us feel not so novice.
We truly enjoyed the visit, the wine, the people and the knowledge of what makes the C'dOr so special in the hearts of wine lovers and connoisseur. Great Tour.
Note: The address was the Dijon Tourism Office. Thanks to some wonderful towns people who were very tolerant of my poor French, we figured out where to meet the tour at the previous location of the Tourism Office which recently relocated. Just arrive early and enjoy Dijon.
Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide.
This tour allowed to see this beautiful region as we did not rent a car.
Two excellent wineries were visited.
Highly recommend.. Thanks Adrian for taking us through the country side and giving us 11 wines before lunch :) very informative..
We could not have had a better tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and made the experience one we will never forget.
Learned a lot about the region and the wine making process, and saw some beautiful countryside along the way.
Excellent tour! My fiancé and I had a great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and this is a very personal tour. Recommended!
the wine tour is excellent. The tour guide Christopher is very informative and helpful in explaining the details about wine production and tasting. We have tasted in total 13 wines (mostly red, 2 wine cellars).
This was a great tour. Lou Lou was our guide and he was very friendly, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about french wine. The meeting spot for this is tour is about 100 yards from the train station (coming directly out of the train station and walking straight up the street in front). The drive to the wine area is about 30 minutes. During that time Lou Lou gave us a wealth of information about the wine region, who owns the vineyards, how the bottle labeling works, the good growing areas, the varietals grown. Lou Lou was a great tour guide especially since he had schooling in grape growing and wine making. We made two winery stops including one stop where we made a brief stop in the cellar to see how the bottling process works. The wines that we tasted were pinot noir and chardonney, which are typical for the region. Lou Lou made sure to include a stop that had shipping boxes for those that wanted to take wine home with them. It is also a great tour because they keep the size of the tour small, there were only 5 people on my tour so there was lots of personal attention and time for questions. I would recommend this tour as a great option for exploring this wine region. I have done a number of tours in the California wine region and Lou Lou was much more knowledgeable than any guide I had ever encountered there.
The tour guide was very good and the wineries we visited was good in providing an idea of wine making in the region.
Emily was was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Pickup at the train station was easy and the trip through the wine country was interesting and the scenery was what you would expect from Burgundy. The tour was better than I expected.
Excellent tour, small group, lots of special attention. Really enjoyed this!
We thoroughly enjoyed this wine tour.. It was very informative and covered a good range of both wines and topics. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared this well with our group.
Great trip and very informative. The guide was really nice and friendly. It was my first time wine tasting like this and I really enjoyed it.
I would recommended to other people. Beautiful region of France.
Guide very friendly and knowledgable. Good range of wines sampled. Could have been a little longer, perhaps, but maybe long enough. My wife and I did have a very good time.
Our guide, Chris, was very informative and interesting. We learned so much, and had a great time. The wine was wonderful, and the scenery even better.
