You'll begin by crossing over the northern tip of the limestone escarpment of the Cote-d'Or to gain wonderful views across the plain as you descend to the village of Chenove. From here turn south and wind your way along the Chemin des Grand Crus, passing the vineyards of Couchey and Fixin and continuing along to the famous wine village of Gevrey-Chambertin.* (*Staying at Rotisserie du Chambertin*)*
Options today include taking the train to Dijon or Beaune. In Dijon stroll the history-filled streets and alleyways with 12th-15th century timbered houses to see the Church of Notre Dame, cathedral and the grand Palace of the Dukes of Burgundy. *(*Staying at *Rotisserie du Chambertin)*
Leave the vines behind today and head up into the woods where you'll follow an old disused railway track. Wind through shady, protected woodland before emerging back into the sun-soaked vines behind tranquil Morey-St-Denis, a good place to enjoy a coffee break. Continue on through the sleepy village of Chambolle-Musigny to Vougeot and visit the historic Chateau du Clos de Vougeot which produces one of the world's most celebrated Grand Cru wines. *(Staying at Le Richebourg)*
There are two options for your 'rest day'. You could walk up through the woods to a secluded chateau in the hills, behind the vineyards of Vosne-Romanee - here you have the opportunity to learn about truffle hunting in the chateau grounds with Thierry, his son Yann and their specially trained dog Elfe (Thursday to Monday only). Alternatively take a stroll through the vines to the world-famous medieval town of Nuits-St-Georges. Explore the town and enjoy lunch here, then maybe a spot of wine tasting in one of the many local caves.* (Staying at Le Richebourg)*
A 25-minute transfer takes you to Pernand-Vergelesses to follow vineyard tracks past the Hill of Corton, once owned by Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Then it's on to medieval Savigny-les-Beaune for a morning coffee next to the impressive chateau, which houses a collection of vintage cars, motorbikes and planes. Walking up through woodland, you emerge above Beaune with spectacular views over the town and its surrounds. Descending into the vineyards you can visit the Parc de la Bouzaise or Beaune.* (Staying at Hotel Le Central)*Optional shorter walk: 5.5hrs, distance 16km/10mi
