Burgundy with


Exclusive trip to Domaine Serene's Historic Château in Burgundy, France

Thanks to the generosity of Domaine Serene, three very lucky couples will explore Burgundy’s wine and winemaking tradition in a way few others have had the privilege of experiencing.


You’ll spend five days and four nights at Grace and Ken Evenstad’s home at Chateau de la Crée in Santenay, in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. While you’re there, you’ll tour four of their estate vineyards with the winemaker, enjoy a barrel tasting of rare wines, and tour four of the caves under the Chateau, dating from as far back as the fifteenth century. Of course, you’ll feast on a delicious lunch and savor bottles of legendary red and white Burgundies in their respective vineyards—plus some of Domaine Serene’s wonderful companion wines from Oregon.


Rounding out this amazing package, you’ll tour the famed Hospices de Beaune, the “winemakers hospital” and ancient almshouse that now houses the most famous wine auction in the world. You’ll also visit a cooperage and learn about the traditional craft of barrel making. Don’t worry about the details, your concierge will make reservations and reserve transportation for you while you’re in Burgundy.
