Welcome to Burgundy, whose centuries-old vineyards, the famous "Climats de Bourgogne", have recently been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. 

Having grown up in the German wine region Franconia, I offer as a state-certified tour guide country and city and vineyard tours. 

Come and share my passion for Burgundy's history, wine, art and culture! 

I live in the wine village of Meursault. Therefore, my focus is on the region around Beaune. But I will also be happy to accompany you to other destinations between Chablis and Cluny, Cîteaux and Autun. I would also be happy to put together an individual programme for you. Ideas for classic and original destinations can be found here.
