Burgundy Half Day Wine Tour by Vintage Land Rover

Burgundy Half Day Wine Tour by Vintage Land Rover

The south of Bourgogne/Burgundy produces white wine, it's a region known as Mâconnais which is the border with beaujolais region.
The area's first source of income is wine, it's not an industry, it's a lifestyle as there are mainly small producers who are free to create in their own style as long as they stay within limits defined by the industry.

We've been coming here forever, we know the ins and outs of the area and we take pride in being the friend of a friend you'd like to have in a place you didn't know.

We travel too and we hate being treated as tourists but we love being travelers. That's what we hope to do for you!

The tour description above is an outline of what we can do, we usually end up adapting the content of the half day to maximize the value for money and time you put in us.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Verze, Verze, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte

Our first stop will be in the vines on a nice view point where we'll tell you about the wine in Burgundy as we open a bottle from that very vine for you to taste.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Vergisson, Vergisson, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte

We'll make our way by small country roads to a quaint village hidden between two hills to visit a winery and taste a pretty good white wine. The idea is to show you a winery after having seen a the vine.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: La Roche de Solutre, Chemin de la Roche, 71960 Solutre-Pouilly France

This hill has quite the story, the oldest trace of human presence dates back from the pre historical age and its latest history dates from the french president in the 80's who'd walk up the hill every year to pay his respect to the french resistance of world war 2.
We can walk up there if you're up for it, it's an easy 40 min walk at a slow pace.

Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Stop At: Solutre-Pouilly, Solutre-Pouilly, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte

This village is probably the most famous one on today's tour. We'll be telling you about a real druid who lives here, we'll tell you about this unique personality and the wine he grows.
We'll also stop for a proper wine tasting of different wines of the region with the help of a professional.


Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Leynes, Leynes, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne-Franche-Comte

For our last stop, we'll visit a domain run by a young couple that represent this new generations of winemakers who will give us a taste of their wine grown both in Mâconnais (Bourgogne) and Beaujolais, they will also share their take on new techniques and trends.
