About this experience & host
Our 1-day Chablis wine tour is the perfect introduction to northern Burgundy and its wines. The history of wine-growing here goes back to the Gallo-Romain period, the vestiges of which is found in the name of a rare local grape variety, the Cesar, as well as in the wine-harvest scenes and vines sculpted in the bas-reliefs discovered during archaeological digs.
During your trip with us you will learn, amongst many other things, all about the history of winemaking in the Chablis,and especially the essential role played by the Cistercian monks from the nearby Abbey of Pontigny in developing the vineyards and improving viticultural techniques. Further more you will be introduced to the different “terroirs” that produce the diversity of styles of wines so that you gain a better understanding of the influence of of soil composition in the development of aromas and style of wine. It will also be your opportunity to gain insights into vineyard techniques such as canopy management and pruning as well as the fascinating subject of organic, biodynamic and natural wine-making techniques which are gaining favour with producers and consumers alike.
During the course of the day with us, your trip will also be a cultural experience as you will learn about the rich history of one France's most fascinating regions. And time permitting, a stop in the stunning village of Noyers-sur-Serein will transport you back to the glory of medieval Burgundy and the great Dukes!
You will discover a truly authentic, unspoiled wine-growing region; beautiful landscapes and timeless villages, fashioned by the hands of generations of wine-growers passionate about their work and concerned with maintaining and passing on their age-old knowledge.
And of course, we will assist in organising the shipping of your favourite wines from the vineyard to your doorstep.
