Hi Libbie.

Good wineries that offer tours in English are Maison Louis Jadot and Domaine Drouhin (this takes you through ancient caves in the heart of Beaune that used to belong to the Dukes of Burgundy). While, it’s a bit off the beaten path you can visit Chateau de Chamilly, which I believe is well worth it and depending how much you want to spend tours can be arranged through Discover Burgundy or Taste Burgundy Wine School.

P.S. This is an excellent blog entry. I will keep it forever!

I’m making plans for a group of friends to visit the region from Chalon to Beaune in July. I’m trying to find a winery that offers tours and tastings. The only one we have found so far is Pommard and they will be closed on July 8, the day we will be there. Can you suggest how I might identify other vineyards that offer tours in English? Your help will be much appreciated. I’m stumped and so is my Paris travel agent.
