Every year, Burgundy gets an influx of foodies and wine enthusiasts who all want to indulge on its world-famous Burgundy wines and other varieties.

Let’s start our trip to Burgundy with a blast by taking a bike tour around the town of Chablis. Located on the northern part of Burgundy, Chablis is a French wine district best known as the producer of the zesty and bubbly Chardonnay. Here, you get to listen to stories of how this famous French wine is produced and cultivated. Furthermore, it allows you to get up close and personal with the grapes and wineries used to create this wine and other varieties. Best of all, a visit to this town allows you enjoy sipping on a few glasses of Chardonnay.
After our trip to Chablis, we’ll make our way to other wineries that produce top-notch wines like Aloxe Cortin, Puligny Montrachet, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard. Of course, we will be touring all these wineries with our rented bikes. To me, a bike tour around these wineries will give us a chance to enjoy the awe-inspiring and picturesque backdrop of Burgundy. Besides, we need some exercise after sipping all these wines and eating sumptuous French culinary treats.
As our bike trip around Burgundy comes to an end, it is time to set our sights on taking a barge cruise on the Burgundy Canal. As far as I’m concerned, this barge adventure is a truly wonderful and luxurious experience like no other. As we cruise along the canal, we get to enjoy scenic views of the Burgundy’s historic sites and communities from a different perspective. To top it all off, the barge offers us a wide selection of wines as well as tasty French dishes.
