Highlights

A Focus On Smaller Producers

Many of us have enjoyed some of the bigger Burgundy wines, yet, the region, and its neighbor Beaujolais, are packed with smaller yet equally incredible vineyards. All producing excellent wines with a passion running in their families for decades and at times, centuries. On this journey, we focus on these smaller producers while incorporating a few bigger names along the way.

Memorable Culinary Experiences

The initial stop on our itinerary is the Lyon region, hailed as the 'World Capital of Gastronomy,' celebrated for its cuisine that perfectly complements the wines of the adjacent Beaujolais region. Among the numerous culinary highlights of this journey, a visit to the Paul Bocuse Culinary Institute promises an exceptional gastronomic experience.

Château de Bagnols, a fortress magnified by eight centuries of French art de vivre, overlooks the Beaujolais vineyards. It all started in 1217, and a monumental Gothic fireplace still bears the date. Today, the eponymous restaurant plays with purity and color to honor the richness of the Monts du Lyonnais terroir. The château is a voyage into the past with its collection of luminous suites — richly decorated with frescoes and period tapestries and filled with the fragrances of the countryside — which open out to a landscaped garden. They are juxtaposed with the wine cellar that uses wood to create a contemporary design.

This was our first trip with Art in Voyage, and hopefully it won’t be the last! Our guides, Mikael and Katie, were wonderful. The accommodations, food, wine, and experiences were amazing. And no detail was too small or overlooked. They thought of everything! We had 6 guests and 2 guides, so we were taken care of with exceptional care. And compassion when my husband was under the weather for a few days.
This was a spectacular experience and I only wish we had found Art in Voyage sooner!

My wife and I recently took a wonderful journey through the Burgundy & Beaujolais wine region of France. Mikael and Katie “The Wine Fairy” were our hosts, and we couldn’t have been in better hands. Our accommodations were first class, the food was spectacular and, of course, the wine was delicious. We learned so much from Katie about French wine making and she was so knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the journey. The small tour group ( maximum 10 ) made this an intimate experience with many funny moments and lasting memories. Thanks to everyone at Art in Voyage for putting together a fun and informative tour. Highly recommend this tour company for your next adventure.

This is our 5th Art In Voyage journey and we have two more planned in 2024 and 2025. This journey was exquisite as always. Every day was a joy. Mikael and Katie were both accommodating to all our particular needs. Our two accommodations; a 13th century castle and a 12th Century Abbaye were both comfortable and different experiences. Our massage after our arrival was a welcoming extra. Katie Barratt AKA as Katie the Wine Fairy is not only wine knowledgeable but a warm, funny and engaging personality. Mikael is the consummate host on these journeys. He visited many pharmacies to purchase medications for me to address the cold I seemed to have contracted while traveling. I really can’t say enough good things about this group.

Freshly back from a Burgundy & Beaujolais experience with Mikael and his local wine experts. We learned so much about French wine, topped by incredible culinary feasts. The accommodations were over the top, yet, authentic and very “French”. We left our hearts in France but were ready for some more adventures with Art In Voyage. Great job guys!

This is the second trip we have taken with Mikael and Art in Voyage and are already planning our third with him and his team. Our introduction to Burgundy was mind-blowing.
They are service focused, they offer well-crafted journeys and we always have a great experience. They incorporate interesting venues and experiences that we would not have found on our own. Great job! See you in 2023!
