Visits to vineyards

Head for the heart of Burgundy vineyards, the pride of French viticulture tourism!

Burgundy’s great wine-growing history goes back to the early 4th century A.D., when wine-growing country extended much further than it does today.

Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Beaune, Aloxe-Corton, Fixin, Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, Morey-Saint Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, Puligny-Montrachet, Volnay, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée… each name a reminder of great moments of pleasure, to be discovered when you visit Burgundy.

The Côte Saint Jacques in Joigny, on the steps of Burgundy, is the ideal place from which to embark on this journey to the heart of the most prestigious vineyards.

Here, you will be near Chablis, whose white wines must surely be included among the world’s finest, and the vineyard of the Coasts of Auxerre. But why not start with a visit to the vineyard of Michel LORAIN, located at the Côte Saint Jacques. Indeed, Jean-Michel Lorain’s father is a wine-grower who produces top quality wines, white, red and rosy, not to mention an excellent Burgundy Crémant.

You can also book a "One Chef, One Wine-Grower" package deal, prepared in partnership with the Laroche estate in Chablis, which will allow you to combine your discovery of vineyards with gastronomy.

Themes for tours to Burgundy vineyards are as many as they are varied: chose the “olfactory stroll” through the vineyards, from Chablis to Vougeot, passing by Gevrey, which the official site of the Wines of Burgundy offers you… Or discover the ancestral ritual of the famous charity wine sale of the Hospices of Beaune, held each year in November. This sale features many tastings and oenology-related exhibitions. Traditionally, the watch is held at a chapter of the Chevaliers du Tastevin in the Castle of the Clos de Vougeot .

We also offer a tour and many addresses to visit Chablis’ vineyards, on the Tourism page of the site, and we can help you organise a wine tasting there.
