Wine and tourism in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

More than a simple product, wine is a culture and even a philosophy you can initiate yourself to in numerous ways in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

For prestige: the Road of the Grand Crus of Bourgogne

The one called the “Champs Elysées of Bourgogne” unveils, on a narrow ribbon between Dijon and Santenay a mosaic of winegrowing land and sites and unique villages of which some have famous names (Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Romanée Conti… ). A unique opportunity to learn about exceptional wines!

This complex and legendary region has joined the illustrious list of the UNESCO World heritage for the « Climates of vineyards in Bourgogne ». A classification that honours the combined work of man and nature with 1000 particularities (geology, relief, exposure…)

For the discovery of the Jura, one of the smallest vineyards in France

The vineyards of the Jura can be discovered along generous vineyards that are favourable for the production of such famous nectars as the vin jaune or straw wine. On the programme of your oenological tourist journey: Arbois capital of the Jura wines, listed villages, remarkable natural sites like the spectacular recess of Baume-les-Messieurs or the waterfall of the Tufs…punctuated by visits to the cellars and other wine maturing centres.

For those who like partying and tradition!

In Bourgogne-Franche-Comté we know how to celebrate wine! Wheher it is the Saint Vincent Tournante in late January or the Percée of the Yellow Wine in February, those two festivals are a good opportunity for sharing with the regional producers, tasting superb wines and above all enjoying a unique experience in a festive atmosphere at the heart of the Jura vineyards and the Bourgogne.

For oeniphiles who like tastings

If for you oenotourism is above all a synonym of tasting and sharing with wine producers, the Oenopass Bourgogne is made for you. This key will open the doors to the most iconic vineyards of the Bourgogne, with human and taste experiences as a bonus.

Another initiative that could be to your taste: the label « Vignobles et Découvertes », that guarantees authentic and warm moments in the cellars of some 215 wine professionals.

A wine tour or a oenology lesson at the École des Vins de Bourgogne can also be the chance to expand your knowledge and your control of the codes.

For a rural wine excursion, on foot or on your bike

Take a group of friends or a family who came here to stock up nature and fresh air. Add bicycles or walking shoes. A pinch of prestigious vineyards of Bourgogne or the Jura. Côte de Beaune, Chablisien or Côtes du Jura; a wine producer happy to let you visit his cellars or his domain. You obtain a real bucolic fun and sporty excursion!
