Burgundy is vintage B&R territory—a place renowned for its culinary traditions, celebrated wines and rich history. With our European headquarters based in Beaune, Burgundy for us is literally home terrain. Thousands of miles of peaceful, paved roads await your exploration, and our guides are well acquainted with how best to stay off the beaten track when traversing this stunningly varied landscape. We’ll lead you to the top of the gorgeous Hautes Côtes, uncork the splendid vintages from French wine’s ancestral home, and bed down in the region’s most exclusive hotel: the Abbaye de la Bussière. In sum, it’s pure pleasure!
