The Sancerre-Pouilly-Giennois triangle
In this area full of flavours and grape varieties, there are 4 different AOC (Protected Designation of Origin): Sancerre, Côteaux du Giennois, Pouilly-Fumé, and Pouilly-sur-Loire, the smallest AOC of the Centre Loire wines!
This vineyard is not particularly well-known as it only covers a mere 225 hectares around the Château de Couches, but this hidden gem is worth exploring nevertheless, and you’ll have the opportunity to stop by and meet some of the winegrowers from this appellation.

The Route des Grands Crus
In the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, each village is just as well-known as the last. There are treasures of historic heritage to see, such as the Château du Clos Vougeot and the Hospices de Beaune. Some great wines and excellent restaurants. Here is the very best of these two neighbouring winemaking areas. Since 2015, the 'Climats' of Burgundy's vineyard have been listed as UNESCO world heritage and these unique vine plots can be found right here.
The Yonne vineyards
There are some great discoveries to be made in the Chablisien, Auxerrois, Tonnerrois, Vézelien and Jovinien.
This vineyard in the north of the Côte-d'Or mainly produces Crémant de Bourgogne. Stop by the estate while you’re exploring the Route du Crémant! On the programme: tours of the winegrowing estates and/or the Musée du Vin, lunch and dinner at the châteaus, discover the Vix Krater, and so much more. One thing is certain, you won’t be bored!
