La Petite Vadrouille@C

La Petite Vadrouille@C Lorch Agence RPEvents some of the most prestigious domaines – Chateau de Meursault Chassagne- Montrachet, Le Chateau de Saint Aubin and Domaine Joillot Pommard. At Maison Olivier Leflaive you can even tour the vineyards by bike. Not just any old bike, a wine powered bike! Seating 12, sip the finest wines as you pedal! There’s no better way to appreciate this patchwork of vines than from the air. We took to the skies in a helicopter and got a birds eye view of the tapestry of vineyards, peppered with tiny stone huts, paths trod for thousands of years, stone walls, mills and castles. The countryside around is glorious and after the helicopter dropped us off in a vineyard for a picnic and wine tasting, we set off to discover the Cirque du Bout du Monde - the Circus at the end of the world. It’s a unique mountainous part of Burgundy, a classified site of outstanding natural beauty where you can stand under a 40 metre high waterfall, surrounded by vineyards. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never seen the film, a tour of Beaune and its surroundings is a soulsoaring experience.
