Chablis, halfway between Paris and Beaune, forms the real gateway to Burgundy’s treasure‐house of wines. The vineyards, lying on both sides of the River Serein, cover 6,800 hectares (some 17,000 acres) in 20 villages and produce one of the most popular white wines in the world: Chablis famed for its classic dry and mineral taste, 100% Chardonnay.

The Village of Chablis in the middle of the Grand Crus :

Your Licensed English-Speaking Guide will pick you up from your hotel or apartment in Paris at 7.00 am in a deluxe, private vehicle. He is also a Professional Sommelier graduated from the French Wine University. During this tour you will enjoy the advice of a wine expert and share unforgettable moments with him (our experienced wine consultant works with top quality wine growers and will teach you the main basis for a Chablis tasting). Only 1 hour and 45 minutes south of Paris, your guide will drive you far from the main roads. Your day will begin with a stop in the middle of the vineyards where your guide will explain to you about terroir, geography and grape varieties. Enjoy a panoramic view of the Village of Chablis in the middle of the Grand Crus. The vineyards of Chablis are among the oldest in France. Through the centuries and the world over, Chablis’ white wines have acquired extraordinary renown.
