250.00 € Inc.VAT / person

Chablis vineyard tour, includes lunch and tasting in our cellars in Beaune.


Discover the delights of Chablis and lunch at the charming Moulin de Vaudon

Join us to discover the beautiful vineyards of Chablis and learn how this once forgotten area is enjoying renewed acclaim. The wines of Chablis are unlike the Chardonnays from more southern areas in Burgundy due to their unique location and terroir.

We will visit the Premier Cru parcels, and then the Grand Crus, each situated on different sides of the river Serein. We will taste a glass of Grand Cru from our parcel 'Les Clos' whilst overlooking the parcel, and learn about Robert Drouhin's passion for Chablis and how he was instrumental in the revival of this wine region.

The vineyard tour will be followed by a tasting and a buffet lunch in the grounds of the stunning 18th century Moulin de Vaudon; a former water mill now owned by the Drouhin family. We will taste a selection of wines from our Chablis domaine; village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru, and you could take a stroll in the enchanting grounds or sit and enjoy a cool glass of refreshing Chablis in the shade of the weeping willow.

In the afternoon, we will return to Beaune and the historical cellar of the Drouhin family where you will enjoy a tasting of a selection of our wines, both white and red; giving you an overview of the various jewels that Burgundy can produce. A fitting end to a wonderful day.
