    Bourgogne Wine Tour - Oct 2022 (SOLD OUT)

    Bourgogne Wine Study Tour with Andrew Jefford

    Operated by   

    October 16 – October 21, 2022

    Embark on our Bourgogne Study Tour!

    Bourgogne wines are some of the finest, most sought-after wines in the world. Bourgogne is a legendary wine region and a reference for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. It is also a complex wine region with its numerous appellations and shared “climats” and is not always easy to understand. Travelling to Bourgogne allows you to grasp first-hand the meaning of terroir, the underlying concept which is the basis of its appellation system, and taste and savor many of these exceptional wines.

    There are not 140 miles of distance between Chablis and the Mâconnais, but rather 45 million years of geological history represented in soils on and around escarpments, coombs, colluviums, fault lines, and bioherms. One visit to Bourgogne will make you a terroir-ist for the rest of your life.

    The landscape is fractured; the vineyanted by extensive multiple-ownership. Bourgogne is both complicated and complex…and seeing is believing.

    Bourgogne takes the broad French concept of terroir and winnows it down to something infinitesimally exacting within the framework of AOC law. There are approximately 500 AOCs, or designated zones of wine production, in France. One hundred and one of them are in Bourgogne alone. This northeastern section of France representing a 140 miles stretch from Chablis to the Mâconnais, is responsible for 6% of French wine production, yet represents 20% of all French AOCs.

    This trip is SOLD OUT. Don't miss the announcement of our 2023 study trips!

    • Discover the Bourgogne wine region with your instructor, Andrew Jefford, the multi-award-winning writer for Decanter and World of Fine Wine magazines, recently appointed overall Academic Advisor for Wine Scholar Guild
    • Tour through Bourgogne and study the differences in Bourgogne wine styles. Discover the prestigious wines of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, the bone-dry whites of Chablis in the cooler north as well as quality wines of the Mâconnais and Côtes Chalonnaise.
    • Visit the most celebrated grand crus of Bourgogne. Study the terroirs of renowned vineyard sites and master the intricacies of the appellation and multi-tiered hierarchy system that classifies Bourgogne wines.
    • Experience insider tastings with winemakers at top Bourgogne estates. Taste different vintages and experience the depth and remarkable quality of these distinguished wines.
    • Lunch and dine in the region's best restaurants and discover the fine local Burgundian cuisine paired with the excellent local wines.

    Travel with a group of wine students who are serious about wine, either as wine professionals or committed wine lovers. Share an educational, epicurean and unforgettable experience while mastering the world of Bourgogne. Trips are open to people from all countries, and are held in English.

    Tracy was a fantastic addition to the trip. Her local knowledge of producers, roads, restaurants and logistics proved invaluable.
