What to expect
  • Begin your wine-fuelled day tour with pick-up from your central Beaune hotel, and set out along the famous Grands Crus Wine Road. As you follow the popular trail from Gevrey-Chambertin via Vosne-Romanée to Chassagne-Montrachet, listen as your guide explains the importance of the region’s unique ‘terroir’, and the prestigious classification system of Premier Crus and Grands Crus wines. Hop out to stroll the vineyards or admire the views as you journey through the Côte de Beaune region, then make your first stop at a renowned wine estate. After exploring the winery and vineyards, get your first taste of Burgundy wine with an expert-led tasting of vintage wines. Depending on the day, your next stop will be at a family-run estate in the Côte de Beaune or Côte de Nuits region, where you’ll be treated to a Grands Crus lunch. Tuck into a delicious 3-course meal of local cuisine, paired with fine Burgundy Premier Cru and Grand Cru classed wines and regional cheeses. After lunch, take time to explore the winery and visit the wine cellar for a tasting of vintage wines. In the afternoon, continue through the Côte de Nuits appellations, and discover the wines of Vosne-Romanée, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-Saint-Denis. Stop for one final tasting, to sample the world-renowned Burgundy reds in a private wine cellar, where you’ll get chance to try wines from estates not open to the public and discover little-known local gems that can only be found in the region. Finally, after a leisurely day of fine food and wine, and samples of up to 20 different wines (including 10 Grand Cru wines), return to Beaune, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Fantastic introduction to the fine wines of Burgundy.
Sep 2020
We had a fantastic day sampling some great Burgundy wines and learning a lot about winemaking in the region thanks to our superb guide, Sebastian. He had an excellent relationship with all four of the wineries we visited and clearly enjoyed sharing his encyclopaedic knowledge. His passion was infectious so in future I shall only use my Bordeaux for cooking ;-) I must also mention our lunch at Domaine du Comte Senard as the Boeuf Bourguignon was the best I have ever tasted and an excellent complement to the Echezeaux Grand Cru, 2016 as well as the other fabulous wines we were served - thank goodness I wasn't driving! The tour was good value for money and I hope to do it again some day. Many thanks to all concerned.

Amazing & Informative Experience!

We had an incredible time learning about Cote de Beaune and Cote de Nuit. Mario's experience and knowledge about the area is outstanding. I feel that I know about everything about the region from geology to history to microclimates to viticulture to the enjoyment of Burgundy wines. An extremely thorough tour for true lovers of wine.

We had an incredible experience on our tour thanks to our guide Thomas. His knowledge of Burgundy wines is incredible and he was able to keep all of us riveted for the entire day. Thomas organized an amazing group of tastings and really helped us learn and enjoy the wines. We had a variety of levels of wine knowledge amongst us and Thomas was able to keep everyone interested without losing anyone. In addition to his incredible knowledge, he was fun and charming. If you are in Burgundy and want a world class 5 star experience sign up for this tour and ask for Thomas!

2 Day Tour - Excellent
May 2019 • Solo
I want to thank Authentica Tours for a terrific experience, in particular my guide Antonin. I found the tour as I was seeking unique experiences with the hidden gems of Burgundy, to experience both sides of the region and the Grands crus. The company fully delivered on my expectations. The tour offered comparative insights into each of the domains and locations by providing direct access to the wine makers to introduce their styles and philosophies.

At one point in the trip, I requested a modification to the itinerary and Antonin along with the owner of the company Emmanuel were very attentive to what I was seeking and made it happen. As a mid-30 solo traveler, the company did a great job matching me with a guide who was relatable, knowledgeable and fun to be around. This made the private tour special.

AMAZING BURGUNDY EXPERIENCE!!!! Authentica Tours is #1
Mar 2018
We had an incredible experience with Authentica tours while in Burgundy. The company is extremely responsive, and helpful. They have done a great job of staying in touch with my wife and I, and continue to provide excellent service to us even after the tour! Recently, we asked to ship additional wines from various producers in Burgundy through Authentica 7 months after our initial trip, and they graciously offered to pick up the wines and ship them, and again are so responsive and professional. I would recommend Authentica to everyone I know. During our tour, our tour guide was professional, the lunch at Domaine Trapet was absolutely perfect, and the excellent service continues. Authentica does not stop providing excellent service after your tour, they continue to give as long as you stay in touch with them. This is not my first review of them, but they were so incredible to work with when it comes to continuing to order wines through them that they deserved a 2nd 5 Star review. Best tour company I've ever worked with. thanks Authentica!

Immensely educational and fun experience
Oct 2018 • Couples
When we booked our tour, telling them that we didn't drink red wines we were skeptical, but after a full day with our exceptional guide Sebastien, we thought they did a spectacular job.

It was just the two of us, starting out in Chagny and stopping at one house where we tasted seven Premier and Grand Crus after a tour of a working winery, and ended up getting a couple of cases from them of wines that are hard to find in the U.S. From there we drove through more vineyards and ended up at a house where we had a traditional style meal and tasted a few more wines from the Corton area (and got a case from there--the vineyard was literally next to the house we ate in). Then ended up at the tasting cave where we got another half dozen plus white wines as we requested and got more bottles.

On that note, we had everything shipped to the U.S. We are fortunate to live in a state that allows shipments, and they packaged everything and shipped it to us. It takes about two weeks to arrive once it's shipped, but it's the best way to go since they will collect everything and ship it without you worrying about carrying anything back yourself.

The amount of information our guide was able to share was amazing. We're pretty well informed about wines and asked Sebastien everything else that we didn't know and not once was he unable to give us a clear and concise answer. It was honestly one of the most educational and informative experiences we've ever had. This is definitely the tour to take, just make sure not to drink all the wine they give you, you won't make it home.

With our warmest regards, Authentica Team

Ivan the Great
Sep 2018 • Couples
Booked a private Burgundy wine tour for 4 people. Ivan was very prompt in picking us up at our hotel. He gave us a nice driving tour of the region, including going right into the region and field for the harvest. Each of the wineries were not open to the public, so this made our visit very special. Each wine room was previously set up for us, so that when we arrived we just began tasting.
Ivan was incredibly knowledgable about the wineries, grapes, region etc...
And YES...I would use them again

Highlight of the trip
Sep 2018 • Solo
My guide, Hubert, has an excellent palate and a vast, encyclopedic knowledge of the vineyards of the Cote d'Or. Along with the recognized names, he got us in to visit some lesser-known but excellent negotiants who were kind enough to share some amazing wines. We walked the cellars, the production areas, and the vineyards while he gave a very educational commentary on what we were seeing. Most of all, the wines were fabulous, One of the Chablis Grand Cru forever changed my appreciation of that region. This tour was without doubt the best moments of my trip to France.

The responsiveness of the Authentica’s team remained very impressive; from email correspondences to the actual tour, they proactively worked with us on our tour itinerary. On the tour day, guided by their prior record of our visit, our itinerary was further refined as we proceeded on our tasting by our expert and fluent guide, Jeremy Durand. He brought us back to some of our previous experiences, and opened new doors for new and amazing discoveries.

Our tour started from 930am to the evening, inclusive of a delicious Burgundian local lunch. There was plenty of drinking water in the comfortable car. At the end of the tour, we really felt that we have gained a better appreciation of the distinctiveness of Burgendy wines and vintages.

They also went an extra mile to get a walking stick that helped me enjoy the day with my badly sprained ankle.
