SIDECAR excursions in the vineyards - "The soul of Burgundy’s 'terroir'" trip - 2 hours



Treat yourself to a complete immersion, original, unusual, fun and 100% vineyard! Hop aboard a magnificent vintage sidecar, heading for the prestigious vineyards of Burgundy, in complete safety!
Gilles, your Gentleman Sidecar Rider, will welcome you as a friend and share with you his passion for wines and the region so you can discover the wine-growing villages, the most beautiful landscapes & viewpoints. 
It all starts in Meursault, capital of the great white wines of Burgundy, also famous for its town hall with its glazed tiles that’s become a cult following the film "La Grande Vadrouille". Always surrounded by the best wines of Beaune’s Côte Sud, the route takes you along small roads with little traffic to reveal the region’s secret corners. The tours are designed to offer you the initial keys to understanding Burgundy’s lands and encourage you to discover more from the many professionals in the sector.
So for the two-hour getaway, a commented tasting of a wine (white or red, as you prefer) from the Prosper Maufoux wine house is planned on the site of the vines that produced it. 

Photo stops are regularly provided at the best places (see highlights of each tour), but we can stop on request from yourself if the place particularly appeals to you. 
Each sidecar carries two people: one in "the basket" and one behind the rider, which makes this experience unique and unforgettable.
Perfect for couples.
