We will start with a look at maps and other visuals of the region to give you a sense of the appellations, the notion of "terroir", and how the wines are classified here to offer a backdrop for the wine tastings.

Then we will head into the vineyards and through the charming wine villages to discover the nectar of Burgundy. A typical day will include 3 wine tastings at small family domaines, where you will taste an array of their wines, often with the winemaker themselves.

Between the visits we will be stopping in the vineyards to get a closer look at where some of the most famous and expensive wines in the world are grown. Learn about the viticultural methods specific to the region, and the origins of wine production here going back over 2000 years.

Like a great wine, balance is necessary! We can include visits to a medieval castle or a famous historical site, and indulge in visiting some of the local culinary delights to be found here, including cheese, chocolates and truffles.

And of course to fully understand Burgundy one should pair the wines with a delicious local meal... There is a cornucopia of great restaurants to choose from, depending on the style you prefer.

My diverse career in the wine world originated in California in the late 80s, which enticed me to spend an immersion year in Burgundy, now my permanent home. In 1999 I started Journeys in Wine, creating personalized itineraries for individuals and private, small groups of wine enthusiasts to discover this renowned wine region. Sharing the insider's knowledge of Burgundy I've gained is my passion, along with its wines and rich cultural heritage. Helping make the complexities of the region and its wines more understandable, approachable, and, most especially, more enjoyable for you is my mission!

We will be going to small, family wineries that generally require an appointment to visit, and often need a translator. Among the 4000 producers in Burgundy it can be quite daunting to choose where to go. I have developed a network of wineries to visit who have very good wines with the option to purchase, and even ship them, to your home.

This is an amazing experience that I would recommend to anybody looking to learn more about Burgundy wine and spend a day doing something different. My friend and I were in Beaune and decided to do this as a day trip and it could not have gone better. Kim helped us understand the wines we tasted and it was very personalized and felt like we were spending a day with one of our friends.

This has been such a wonderful experience and I cannot thank Kim enough. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and warm. You don't have the feeling of going through a formal tour, but rather that of an old friend sharing her experience and discoveries. The day started with a few facts about the Bourgogne area and its wines. Throughout the day Kim helped with more details to help build up your knowledge and understanding of the wines. We visited three wineries and, while this might seem like not that much, I can say that there's a lot of tastings and a lot to learn about the wineries. So, at the end of the day you will feel exhausted, but in a nice way. I highly recommend not to drink all the tasted wines, but rather to spit. This will allow you to better enjoy all the variety of wines that you'll be tasting. I don't think I would have visited the wineries without Kim. It was as if he opened some secret doors. At these wineries, the tours and discussions have been informal and very friendly. Such a nice atmosphere and so wonderful to discover many new details about wine production. Not to mention the wines... Kim has been very nice to host the experience even though I was the only registered person. Moreover, she has picked a lovely restaurant where we went for lunch. So amazing! Thank you, Kim, for an amazing experience in Bourgogne, for sharing your passion for wines and for allowing me to discover such wonderful wineries!

Our group had a lovely day with Kim. She is extremely professional and shared her knowledge of local history and wines. She took us to three different wineries that were all excellent. I highly recommend Kim and would book her services again for our next visit to Burgundy.

Moments after meeting Kim, she seemed to be an old friend. She has such a tremendous depth and breadth of experience and burgundy knowledge. We had a truly wonderful day with her. She created a custom day based on our prior experience, and I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. Merci Kim , à bientôt !

We had a fabulous day in Burgundy with Kim visiting 3 different wineries. She's extremely knowledgeable about the wine and history of the region and was a pleasure to spend the day with. She was also super helpful in planning other aspects of our trip, going above and beyond to help us make reservations at great restaurants, too. Would highly recommend!

Kim lead us on a wonderful day. She met us at our AirBnb and started with very informative tutorial of the wines and vineyards of the region. We visited and tasted at fantastic wineries Kim lined up for us, her relationships with the local winemakers added tremendously to the experience. We could not have had the same level of experience without her. She recommended a great local restaurant for lunch and also helped us by getting us lunch & dinner reservations for the next day as well as arranging a cooking class at our AirBnb by a local Chef. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and highly recommend this experience.
