All along the Route des Grands Crus, there are countless ways to get to know Burgundy wines! Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy's famous vineyards, will make your toes tingle if you are a wine lover. Pommard, Corton-Charlemagne, Romanée-Conti, Meursault, Santenay and Savigny-les-Beaune are all from this area and the village itself sends a message that everyone is enjoying their leisure time with wine. The village itself is fun, loaded with as much character as the wines that surround it.

“Climat” is the specific term used in Burgundy for a wine-growing plot and this area has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the climats - the parcel of vines which has its own name, its history, its taste and its place in the hierarchy of wines. There are more than 1000 “climats” stretching out in a thin ribbon running from Dijon to Santenay, south of Beaune; some bear illustrious names such as Chambertin, Romanée-Conti, Clos de Vougeot, Montrachet, Corton, Musigny etc.

UNESCO recognizes the unique character of the wine-producing area between Dijon and Beaune and as far as Santenay. Outstanding scenery, exceptional built heritage, unique know-how – these are the elements that supported an application that came to a conclusion on July 4th 2015.

There are so many areas the produce wine around the world, but this may be the only area that has the UNESCO designation, making it rise above the rest. Enjoy your day of learning and tastings. Hopefully you will have some memory of the day once you return home!

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
