Explore the Burgundy wine region on this 7-day Wine Tour

The tour starts in the beautiful city of Auxerre, Burgundy's northernmost city. Burgundy is a historical territory and a former administrative region of France. It takes its name from the Burgundians, an East Germanic people who moved westwards beyond the Rhine during the late Roman period.

Famous for Dijon mustard and its signature dishes of coq-au-vin and boeuf bourguignon, it is also France's main wine-producing region. As well as its gastronomic delights, Burgundy has some important sites of historical and cultural significance: the Vezelay Basilica and Cluny Abbey, as well as chateaux and the palace of the Dukes of Burgundy.

The city of Beaune is the hub of France’s most revered wine region, situated in the middle of Burgundy. Well known for its Hotel Dieu, a hospital built for the poor, with its beautiful roof and practical but elegant interior, this charming town is a great place to stay and visit local wineries.

Your tour finishes near the small town of Macon which sits on the banks of the river Saone.
