Ride through a patchwork of lush pastures and broad-leaved woodlands interspersed with extensive vineyards, for here, you are in one of France’s foremost wine regions. On a dazzling itinerary, you’ll spot some of the most valuable vines — and wines — in the world.
For those who enjoy classic wines, the names of the towns and villages will resonate with you: Beaune, Nuits-Saint-George, Vosne-Romanée, Meursault… even more exciting will be when you ride past these domains in person! Aside from the stately chateaux, the architecture of Burgundy is distinctive, with many fine old half-timbered buildings whose steeply pitched roofs are patterned in multi-colored tiles.
This itinerary enables an appreciation of food, wine, and the countryside but also provides some healthy exercise to justify a little indulgence at the end of each day. The lattice of quiet lanes and tracks follows rivers and meandering canals, with invigorating climbs into the hills to explore the ancient abbeys, magnificent chateaux, and charming medieval villages.
