Itinerary

We transfer you after breakfast to the tiny village of Echevronne, tucked in a valley of the Hautes Cotes, just north of Beaune. Your path leads you up into the forest, and out to a spectacular panorama of the Corton hill and famous vineyards, above the wine village of Pernand Vergelesses. Descend through the village and skirt the edges of the Corton-Charlemagne grands crus, before continuing on to Savigny-les-Beaune, via a trail that passes several traditional stone cabottes. Take the time in Savigny to lunch, or simply explore the village, and perhaps visit the castle and its collection of antique cars, airplanes and motorcycles! Climb out of Savigny over the top of the hill above Beaune. More spectacular views await as you descend back into Beaune itself in time for your end-of-the-afternoon tour of the incredible Hospices de Beaune, a spectacular hospital built in the 15th century, and THE site to see in Beaune.

 

You will be transferred north this morning, to the centre of the charming town of Nuits St Georges. Linger there if you wish, using our map and walking tour for explorations, or simply to taste some of the delicious regional cassis products at a local organic fruit producer’s shop. Your walk is a true “village hopper”, as you make your way northwards along the Route des Grands Crus of the Cote de Nuits. In Vosne-Romanée you can pay homage to the Romanee Conti vineyard, and then perhaps visit the impressive 15th century Chateau de Clos de Vougeot to admire the monumental antique wine presses. Your destination is the town of Gevrey Chambertin, with its 12th century castle, and proud ownership of nine of the region’s Grand Cru vineyards (more than any other village), including the Grand Cru Chambertin Clos de Beze – the earliest recorded vineyard to have been planted in the region, in the year 608!

 

We transfer you after a final breakfast to the Dijon railway station for your continued travels. There are easy connections from here to Paris. Bon Voyage!
