Long established domaine in the chateau with extraordinary underground caves. Our visit included a walk thru the perfectly manicured gardens and the extended degustation of wines. Tasting 8 different labels from good value to magnificent.

It is totally worth going. The person that hosted us gave an excellent explanation about Bouchard Pere et Fils and Burgundy wines in general.

Very interesting history lesson of the town of Beaune and the winery. Tasting of some of their best wines. Should book ahead - with only one tour a day need to plan.

We had a history lesson on the area and the wines that are made. Justine Hairon, our guide was very informative. The Castle, which is the cellar was incredible and is steeped in history. The wines are really good and we tasted 4 Chardonnay's and 4 Pinot Noir's. A great 90 minutes, well worth the price!

What a rip off this tour was. The woman spoke very rapidly in a heavy French accent so it was extremely difficult to understand her. She just recited facts and figures. No telling of stories about the family, the history, nothing to make this winery with its long history come alive. We had a small group and she never asked... More

You can do better by skipping this tour. Our guide was very "textbook" and felt as though reciting a script. There is a difference with guides that are passionate about the history and winemaking process vs someone that seems to be just working at a job. Maybe part of this has to do with what feels like more of a... More

Although my favourite wine-tasting experiences in Burgundy have typically been those led by the vigneron, in his or her cellar, where English is halting and the focus is entirely on the wine, I did quite enjoy the completely different experience we had at Bouchard Pere.

We asked around town and all the locals would not recommend a winery in town for a tasting. They are all to touristy they said. When pushed we finally got our lovely and knowledgeable bartender at La dilettante to recommend one: Bouchard Pere &Fils! As I really wanted to buy some wines to bring home we headed to this winery... More

Had a visit in cellars with 3 m bottles dating from 1860's, gourgeous city wall garden and Wine shop. The company is largest owner of grand and premier cru wineyeards and gains great reviews recent vintages due to commitment to constant quality improvments. Try if possible the Beaune 1er crus and Meursault 1er crus the company famous for.

Due to complications out of our control (tour guide and agenda was not right) we were 30 mins late. We received a phone call from the staffer who was running the tour/tasting and she was extremely rude and said she didn't want to waste her time so if you're not here in 5 don't bother. We had already pre-paid and... More
