The vines represent the heart and soul of Burgundy, and they are magnificent in autumn. At the winegrowing estates throughout the region, winegrowers are passionate about their wines and making visitors feel welcome. Atypical walking tours, tastings, anecdotes... you will be experiencing a world rich in tradition, proud of its men and women who work tirelessly in the shadows to make sure this heritage gets the recognition it deserves.
Autumn, the highlight of the year
In the wine cellars, between the rows of vines or the carefully stacked barrels, the same excitement echoes all around. Autumn is in full swing in the estates, along the Route des Grands Crus (Route of the Great Wines) through the Mâconnais, via the Auxerrois and the Pouilly-sur-Loire vineyards. It is time for the grape harvest: to collect, sort and press the grapes.
As for the scenery, the orange-red shades of the vines make for a magical sight. You can expect a fantastic experience in the world of wine!
