8 DAYS, 7 NIGHTS
July 06, 2020 - July 13, 2020
Today, Burgundy is treasured for its fine wine but it is only one of its jewels. For centuries, Burgundy had been a vast duchy, larger and more powerful than France. Its dukes sponsored artists and architects, medieval religious communities built impressive churches, generations of monks patiently cultivated vines selecting the best plots of land and developed techniques of fermentation and aging to create today's great vintages.
Burgundians are proud of their ancient heritage, but they also delight in the treasures of Burgundy today. Just as history buffs and art lovers appreciate the region's cultural treasures, outdoor enthusiasts seek out its rich forests and waterways, its hiking trails and towpaths. And everyone enjoys tasting the specialties of local chefs, who have always been noted for their fine regional dishes.
