4 Day Burgundy Cycle Wine Tour - Côte de Beaune
Our self-guided bike trip allows you the freedom to travel independently on the dates that suit you, supported by our regional knowledge, wine route notes and excellent bikes.
Your Burgundy cycle & wine tasting tour itinerary:
As you arrive in Beaune, settle into your hotel before stepping out on the cobbles to explore this captivating town. Upon your arrival at the hotel, your cycle package and fitted, fully equipped bikes are awaiting you. Wander the medieval streets of Beaune, its ramparts, the Collegial church of Notre Dame with its 15th century tapestries, and have a drink in one of the many cafes on the main square!
Your ride today takes you north of Beaune, to Aloxe-Corton. The small vineyard roads, and sea of vines around you, crisscrossed by tiny villages makes for heavenly riding. You will stop here for a visit of the tower and the vaulted cellar built in the 13th century. Following your visit you will sample perhaps some of the finest white wines in the world, together with a Burgundy tasting lunch at a family estate in the heart of the vineyards.
Today you'll cycle to Puligny-Montrachet. This Véloroute winds its way along vineyard paths and is the best way to discover them. It offers mostly little vineyard paths used by winegrowers and grape harvesters. An appetising journey in the heart of Burgundy wines, passing through picturesque villages. Your Burgundy wine tasting tour continues apace as you delve into local vineyards with your specialist guide and learn about the terroir, techniques and types of grape used to make these stunning wines. You’ll then take a tour of a renowned estate to discover the details of the winemaking process, before lunching on a seven-course Burgundy wine tasting menu, with a selection of 10 exquisite specimens for you to sip (or even swig).
After breakfast stroll to one of the region’s longest family cellars where you’ll enjoy your last Burgundy wine tasting - not lest than 13 wines! There’s just enough time to explore Beaune’s labyrinthine backstreets and alleyways, before bidding farewell to the capital of Burgundy wines.
