Burgundy Vineyard Walk
The walking version of our popular 'Wine Lovers Burgundy' will appeal to gourmands and hikers alike with the opportunity to amble through the villages and vineyards of one of France's premier wine regions. Based in a selection of carefully chosen hotels, and including a special winetasting dinner at Olivier Leflaive, the diversity of the program will appeal to the discerning traveller. Walk past ruined chateaux, through thriving wine estates and along forest trails to reach interesting villages. In Beaune, soak up the atmosphere in the Saturday markets and experience exquisite French Chardonnay in Puligny Montrachet. Walking between three to five hours a day, the pace is relaxed to ensure you experience the very best of this outstanding pocket of France.
