A Grand Journey for Wine Lovers

Jill Newman

Butterfield & Robinson has created an extraordinary itinerary for wine lovers that visits some of the world’s oldest and most coveted vineyards along with educational experiences and unrivaled access to renowned wine growers and sommeliers throughout the 11-day trip. The Wine Grand Journey, Bordeaux & Burgundy, France, from June 2 to 12 ($29,500 per person), includes biking or long walks to various destinations, sampling vintages with Michelin-starred meals, and stays in five-star hotels, along with some private jet travel. Guests will learn about the art of blending at Château Lynch-Bages before pedaling to a tasting at Château Lafite-Rothschild. On another day they will cycle along the Gironde estuary, past fishing ports and vineyards, to the medieval town of Saint-Émilion, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
