Preview: Bourgogne Tour by ombiasy WineTours (2016)

Picture: Annette Schiller in Gevry-Chambertin, Bourgogne

When you check the ombiasy web site for wine tours to the Bourgogne region, you will not find any. But, there will be a wine tour to Bourgogne organized by Annette Schiller pretty soon this year (from May 31 to June 6, 2015) and there will be one in 2016. The Bourgogne tour in 2015 is organized for a special group, the Wine Brotherhood of Hochheim, Germany. The 2016 tour has not yet be announced but will be on the ombiasy web site shortly.

The 2015 Bourgogne tour, for the Wine Brotherhood of Hochheim, will begin and end in Hochheim, which is close to Frankfurt: Frankfurt, Champagne, Chablis, Mâconnais, Côte Chalonnaise, Beaune, Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Frankfurt.

The 2016 Bourgogne tour will begin in Lyon and end in Paris. Presumably, we will all fly into Paris and take the TGV to Lyon, the culinary capital of the world. We will move northwards from there (by coach), back to Paris: Lyon, Beaujolais, Mâconnais, Côte Chalonnaise, Beaune, Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis, Champagne, Paris. While in 2015, we will just pass through the Champagne Region, with lunch and one tasting there, in 2016, we will spend more time in the Champagne Region.

A couple of weeks ago, Annette and I did a test run of the 2015 Bourgogne Tour, with an eye on the 2016 Bourgogne Tour. Thus, for example, we went all the way to Lyon and, inter alia, took a look at the prestigious restaurant of Chef Paul Bocuse.

The following provides you with photo impressions from our Bourgogne trip, although I have also added a few older photos.
