En Route vers les Bourgognes... for an unforgettable trip

The 2019 edition of the essential “En Route vers les Bourgognes” wine guide is now available to visitors to the region, in both print and digital versions. It is ideal for discovering or rediscovering Bourgogne and its 84 appellations.

The guide is designed to simplify your research and help organize your trips through six tourist trails that crisscross the vineyards. The 2019 edition contains more than 350 recommended addresses, proof that wine tourism is not a passing fad. Rather, it is a growing trend in Bourgogne.

New this year is a more educational approach. The guide includes explanations of the region’s wine-related brotherhoods, the work of the winegrower and the Climats, along with a wealth of tourist information to ensure visitors enjoy the total Bourgogne experience.

The Bourgogne Wine Board (BIVB) has been committed to wine tourism for many years, as evidenced by our “De Vignes en Caves” welcome charter, which was created in 1991.

For a quick run-down of what’s on offer, the “A trip through the vines” section of the Bourgogne wines website rounds out this offer and will help you prepare a tailored trip, perfect for a long weekend in the spring or early summer!


What is in the 2019 edition of the guide?

- 357 estates, producers, and co-ops that have signed up for the “De Vignes en Caves” charter
- The guide is packed full of useful tips for visitors, including languages spoken, opening hours, price ranges, details on meals and accommodation where offered, plus information on organic producers.
- Cellars are classified by region to help visitors quickly find the producers and wine trails they are looking for.
- A map of the Bourgogne winegrowing region listing key sites to visit across the region, with smaller maps of each wine route on the back. Produced in partnership with the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté tourist board.

New for 2019:

- A presentation of the project for the Cité des Vins et des Climats de Bourgogne network, which is set to open in 2021 in Beaune, Chablis, and Mâcon.
- A reminder of how to take a responsible approach to festivities, part of our constant quest for conviviality and public safety.
- A run-down of industry initiatives regarding societal and environmental responsibility, but also a call for tourists to be more aware and show greater respect from tourists towards those working in the vines.
