Started in 2003, Burgundy Discovery, offers personal, small group wine tasting tours, in English, to carefully selected wine cellars and vineyards in Burgundy that are not always accessible to the public. We take you to meet independent, family winegrowers typical to Burgundy. We visit their ancient cellars, taste their wonderful wines and explore world-famous vineyards as wine-lists come alive! Tours are informal, informative and fun. Join us in a Burgundy Discovery wine tour and share our deep passion for Burgundy and our wines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour today with Robert. During the day, which included three separate tastings and lunch, we discussed everything from the classification of Burgundy wines, to labeling particulars and the unique techniques of Burgundy winemaking. Robert happily answered every question and would be an excellent guide for other beginners like us, or those more experienced with Burgundy wines.... More

My wife and I went on the Hidden Secrets tour in late November 2016. This was a great full day out; picked up from our hotel just after 0900 and were dropped back at 1800. Robert our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. We visited three producers who were very generous, and tried some amazing wine. Information about Burgundy... More

Burgundy is a history lovers dream.Historic and beautiful towns, breathtaking abbeys and ancient and unique buildings. The wine is wonderful but there is so much more to discover .The people are friendly and helpful and the scenery lovely. My favourite places are, Dijon,Beaune (particularly the medieval hospital) ,the abbey of Fontenay and Vezelay. But there are many more lovely places... More

Patrick led us on a great tour of 3 wine producers around the area and a great lunch at a Michelin-starred restaurant. The pace was perfect as was the beautiful weather. This was a great private tour and introduction to the region and its wines.

We tasted terrific wines and learned so much! I am so glad we booked our wine touring with Burgundy Discovery. We booked 2 days of small-group visits, one the Grand Premier Tour and then the Hidden Secrets Tour. Both days were fabulous, and each of our guides was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be with. We toured with Patrick... More

Had a fantastic tour with Robert! Visited 3 wineries and tasted great varieties of red and white at each. Robert was knowledgable and accommodating, and just an overall interesting person to talk to. The fact the tour groups are small is also a huge plus, the tour was customized for us based on our questions and interests. I would 100%... More
