Let Us Show You Our Second Home
Almost everyone falls for Burgundy when they first visit. Us? We picked up and moved there.
We’ve maintained an office in the heart of Burgundian wine country for more than 30 years. That’s why we don’t just do “research”—we get the inside scoop from our neighbours while we’re scheduling you a tasting at their winery. We scout hotels by catching up with old friends, then secure you a room in their 12thC monastery-turned luxury property. We dine with the best chef in Beaune—and bring you for a private meal in his lovely home.
In short, we don’t just love Burgundy, we show you the love.

To Burgundian locals, time is measured by the season. For us, it’s by the kilometre, the meal and the vintage.

Small Group Trips
Burgundy Wine Country Biking
We spent one day in Burgundy decades ago, and decided to never leave. You’ll spend five—so consider yourself warned. We coast from one heavenly (and world-famous) vineyard to the next, clinking glasses with our expert friends along the way. Explore historic Beaune, where our hometown-advantage grants us access to exclusive events and illustrious hosts.See the Trip
Burgundy Canal Cruise Biking
Burgundy is vintage B&R territory—a place renowned for its culinary traditions, celebrated wines and rich history. With our European headquarters based in Beaune, Burgundy for us is literally home terrain. Cruising along the charming Burgundy Canals and waterways in a luxurious Belmond Barge, you’ll be able to hop off daily to pedal the many miles of peaceful, paved roads, pause for wine tastings at landmark wine domaines and discover historic towns and villages that stud the marvelously varied landscape. Welcome to one of the prettiest regions in France.See the Trip
Burgundy Self-Guided Biking Private
Meursault, Pommard, Montrachet… some of the greatest terroirs of the world. Savour private tastings and fascinating walking tour of Beaune with insider Sherry. Combining excellent hotels and incredible routes, this is the Burgundy trip of a lifetime. Final night? At the Abbaye de la Bussière, where you won’t eat like the abbots. Michelin-starred Restaurant 1131 anyone?See the Trip
Burgundy Self-Guided Walking
Can’t spare five decades to build up neighbourly goodwill with Burgundian locals? No need – you can borrow some of ours. We’ve reserved rooms in gorgeous hotels, mapped out exquisite walking routes, hooked you up with famous vineyards, and lined up a local wine-making friend for a dégustation. Just tell ’em B&R sent you – or if you’d like, we can call ahead. Dinner at Le Montrachet? Done.See the Trip
Go Bespoke! We can craft a custom adventure just for you.
Our European headquarters has been in Burgundy for 30 years, meaning we know this region better than anyone—and we'd love to show you our backyard.Get Inspired

David Butterfield: From B&R Guide to Burgundian Winemaker
It’s been 30 years since David Butterfield first set foot in Burgundy, and boy how times have changed. We caught up with the son of B&R co-founders George and Martha Butterfield, now a respected producer of Burgundy Grand Crus, to talk terroir and ask about the allure of local Burgundians.Q&A With David
Jane Eyre: Literary Name, Legendary Wine Knowledge
Who better to explain the grapes of Burgundy than a native Australian?
Don't let the accent fool you: while Jane Eyre may not have been born among Burgundy's vines, her pedigree is beyond reproach. The confessed Pinot Noir obsessive with nine years under her belt at the esteemed Domaine Newman took time to chat with us about the harvest process, the unique appeal of Burgundy and the grape to which she's so devoted.
