Riding a moped through the Mâconnais vineyard
This outing with the Domaine Vincent Cornin is an exploration of the golden valleys and hills in great company. The sound and smell of the retro moped you're given for the day will whisk you back to your teenage years. Let Vincent take you down some of the paths that only he knows!
Take a selfie sitting on your moped, a glass of Burgundy wine in your hand and the iconic Rock of Solutré in the background.
It's time for a tasting!
Then Vincent will take you to his family-run estate. It was created in the 1950s by his grand-father Maurice and today, Vincent is running the family business.
As a supporter of alternative winegrowing, Vincent provides a blend of scientific and experimental know-how to take visitors on an original experience that calls upon all the senses.
Which wines will be the most memorable? The Mâconnais wines, including the prestigious Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé. You'll love the complex aromas of the white wines and the powerful taste of the red wines from this region that has been producing wine for thousands of years.

Somewhere overlooking the vines!
If you come and taste Vincent's great vintage wines with a group of friends, we recommend staying the night. You can expect a peaceful stay in a brand-new rental apartment (Sleeps 4 + 2).
The added bonus is that you'll be waking up to a view of the vines.
By bike through the Côte Chalonnaise vines…
Southern Burgundy is the land of wine... and cycling! Here, the bike is more than just a means of getting from A to B. It provides the chance for a hedonistic and meditative experience along one of Europe's most beautiful greenway routes, between Chalon-sur-Saône and Mâcon!

Not-to-be-missed while you're staying in southern Burgundy
- The Rock of Solutré: This rock stands at 495 m and offers a panoramic view, not only of the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyards as far as the eye can see, but also of the Rock of Vergisson.
- Mâcon: your stay here wouldn't be complete without visiting the town of Mâcon, the southernmost town of Burgundy. The river Saône flows through the town and it's a very pleasant place for a stroll around the historic centre or along the riverbanks.
- Cluny is the name of an extremely well-known abbey from the Middle Ages. Besides visiting the ruins of this historic monument, Cluny is also a very beautiful village and you'll enjoy wandering around the streets, enjoying the warm temperatures of the Indian summer.
