5-Day Burgundy Wine Tour

11th-15th September 2024

We're delighted to present an exceptional visit to one of the world’s most famous wine regions, and a must for lovers of Burgundian wine, food and hospitality. This is a rare opportunity to not just ‘see the sights of Beaune’ on a flying visit, but to experience many aspects of the region as the locals do.


From exclusive brands to small family-owned boutique growers, gourmet cuisine to a rustic picnic in the vines, we'll explore the wide landscape and terroir of Burgundy. The beauty of the region and its wines are steeped in wine-mythology, and this trip has been designed to provide a full, comprehensive and unforgettable experience.

The property has been lovingly restored (full renovation completed in April this year), and provides luxury accommodation combined with a very personal touch. We shall be the only residents during the visit.

There are 5 en-suite bedrooms, each fully air-conditioned and beautifully furnished, together with an open-plan dining and kitchen area, with a separate salon including a 24-hour Honesty Bar. Importantly, the cellars are well stocked! The hotel is owned by long term French residents and ex-vineyard owners, John and Penelope Mitra, who have great friendships and access to many vineyard owners, wine makers and other ‘secret’ keys to the region.

All visits, lunches, and dinners are private, and will be managed by John and Penelope for the duration of the stay.
