A first-class culture and wine holiday in Chablis.
Day one: Arrival late morning, just in time for a bite to eat in one of the village’s wine bars. Next it's off to see the vines, because that’s partly why you’re here, right? Head to Domaine Guy Robin for a perfect example of a local producer. Vineyard visit with the owner then a tasting of the Chablis, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. The cellar is vaulted, the winemaker is independent and the welcome is warm and friendly.
Then it's time to drop off your luggage in a bed and breakfast before heading to Le Clos restaurant with its warm and elegant atmosphere. The food menu contains carefully selected dishes and the accompanying wine list is extensive.
Day two: Start with a morning of time travel as you visit the world’s oldest Cistercian abbey, the Abbaye de Fontenay, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Opt for the guided tour to immerse yourself in the 13th century monk-like atmosphere. Then prepare for your homeward journey with a meal at La Mirabelle in Saint-Rémy, featured in the Michelin Guide 2015. Excellent regional dishes set against an exposed brick decor.
