Departure Time

9:30 AM
Start your tour with a pick-up from your central Beaune hotel by private vehicle, and set out along Burgundy’s famous Grands Crus Wine Road, which runs from Gevrey-Chambertin to Chassagne-Montrachet.

Hop out along the way to stroll through the vineyards of appellations such as Romanée Conti, Clos de Vougeot, and La Tâche. Listen as your guide explains the complex classification system of French wines, the importance of ‘terroir’, and the difference between Grand Cru and Premier Cru wines. Then, get your first taste of the region’s acclaimed wines with an expert-led tasting at a wine estate in the Côte de Beaune district.

Next, stop for lunch at a family-run wine estate in either the Côte de Beaune or Côte de Nuits region (depending on availability), and tuck into a delicious 3-course lunch of typical French cuisine, paired with regional cheeses and more wines. After lunch, take a peek at the estate’s wine cellars, and learn more about the aging process as you sample some of the celebrated vintages.

Spend the afternoon exploring the Côte de Nuits appellations, stopping at locations like Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, and Morey-Saint-Denis. Finally, enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of a private wine cellar not normally open to the public, and get a taste of Burgundy’s world-famous red wines.

After a full day of wine tasting in Burgundy, your tour ends with drop-off at your Beaune hotel.

Exceptional Day!!

The day was perfect! From the train ride out to Beaune, which was so easy to navigate, to meeting our guide, lunch in a quaint private cafe to the many private tastings of at least 20 different wines from the Burgundy region. We couldn’t have imagined a better guide, he was very knowledgeable on every level of producing wine and the history of the region. I recommend this tour to everyone who is in Paris. A great getaway for the day!! It’s a long day but so worth it!! I would love to stay in the area for a few days on our next trip to the region. Enjoy!!

Our Authentica Tour with Ivan was truly a highlight of our trip to France! Our tour guide brought us to elite locations where we tasted phenomenal selections of wine. The wine caves were incredible and our lunch in a cave was awesome! We also went out in the fields to see the grapes close up. Ivan was soooo knowledgeable about the area and the wine making process. This trip was beyond our expectations and worth every single dollar! Ivan was exceptional!

Excellent tour that I highly recommend! Took a private tour with my daughter and guide Ivan was phenomenal. As a retired geologist who grew up in Burgundy, Ivan is a storehouse of knowledge about all aspects of wine, terroir and the wine business. Ivan de-mystified the complexities of burgundy for me. Nice balance of historical, geological and viticultural information, with appropriate amounts of time spent in the vineyards, driving between villages and tasting at interesting sites. Lunch, tasting and tour at Comte Senard was a highlight among highlights. THANK YOU IVAN FOR A FABULOUS EXPERIENCE!
