The region of Burgundy is one of France’s most beloved territories. Famed for its creative arts, glorious countryside, striking architecture and, of course, wine – Burgundy is a natural choice of vacation destination for those searching to embrace the country’s most luxurious experiences.
A Burgundy wine tour is your opportunity to sample some of Europe’s finest wines, and discover the reason that the region is so beloved by connoisseurs from all walks of life. Its musical heritage, meanwhile, will introduce you to the masters. The region played an important role during the Renaissance era, giving birth to much of the music that we love to enjoy, even now.
The Beaune International Baroque Music Festival is now in its 36th year, and has amassed a well-deserved reputation as being one of the world’s pioneering Baroque Opera events. This year’s festival features nine operas and oratorios, and three recitals, with music by Handel, Mozart, Rossini, Vivaldi, Charpentier and Haydn. Hosted by the magnificent Hospices de Beaune and the Basilique Notre-Dame in the centre of town, this stunning festival should not be missed by any admirer of opera, classical music or culture.
We are excited to be able to offer guests an unforgettable festival experience, which will enable them to explore the very best of Burgundy’s music and wine. Spread across three days the tour encompasses fine dining and excellent accommodation, as well as a wine tasting lunch and tour at the Vosne Romanee Vineyard. The weekend’s piece de resistance, though, is a performance of an opera or oratorio concert at the Hospices de Beaune, depending upon the weekend that you’re traveling. You haven’t experienced music until you have enjoyed an opera in Burgundy.
Our tours are limited to small groups of just eight people, which will enable you to enjoy Burgundy and its wine and musical offerings to their full potential.
