BURGUNDY / CHAMPAGNE (May 26 - June 05)

Picture: At the Hospices de Beaune in Beaune, Bourgogne

This 11 day tour takes as from Lyon, world capital of exquisite food, to Reims, world capital of premium sparkling wines. The focus lies on Burgundy, which is the historically highly respected wine region that produced wines for the Emperors of France (we will take a walk through the ancient wine cellars once belonging to the Kings of France) and other Imperial Courts in Europe and beyond. We will visit top wine estates in all distinct sub regions starting with the Beaujolais, moving up to the Mâconnais, Côte Chalonnaise, Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis, and crossing into the Champagne region. We will explore the concept of “climat”, similar to the “terroir” concept in Germany, and will see first hand what it entails to produce a top notch Champagne. And of course we will enjoy fabulous French cuisine.

BORDEAUX (Sept 06 - Sept 15)

Spend 10 days in Bordeaux! ”Bordeaux” embodies more than just wine. In France the interplay of wine and food is very important and almost every day we will have a wine pairing meal at a famous Château. Drawing on our love and deep knowledge of the region as well as our personal ties to many of the players in the Bordeaux wine scene, we will visit many of the hidden gems -such as visiting a cooperage, an oyster farm, some small, top “petit Châteaux” - that other tours pass by, but which are essential to feel what Bordeaux is all about. In a nutshell: this is a hands-on Bordeaux wine class on the ground.

This 9 day tour allows wine lovers and aficionados of the arts to experience what the statement “wine is a form of art” entails. Wine, music, dance, visual arts, kaleidoscope of European and German history. We experience all this in Germany’s beautiful wine regions in the East, which is also the cradle of German intellect and culture. We will visit 19 wineries, among them wineries that embody the wine and art approach, and attend 4 performances at world-renowned theater houses.
