· Wine: whether white or red – the wines from Burgundy are world famous. In this French region, you will find many of the most prestigious wines in the world. Among the most famous wines are the refreshing white wines from the wine-growing region of Chablis and the fruity red wines from Beaujolais. By the way, the noble drops are only served openly in rare cases, usually you would order a bottle. Study the label and try the wine before you enjoy it with friends or family.

· Coq au vin: the French classic known across the borders of France. It is even one of the national dishes, which exists in various variants. Of course, there is also a Burgundian recipe: Coq au Vin de Bourgogne. This is based on the classic recipe that uses a rooster (coq) instead of chicken ("poule") or chicken ("chicken"). The Burgundians add red wine of Côte d'Or.

The waiter will explain the different flavors (from mild to strong) and you choose from three to four varieties for dessert. A dream for all cheese fans!
UsuBasically, you eat more than you need. Is it because you want to treat yourself to something more while on holiday? Or is it the fantastic cuisine of Burgundy? We like to think of it as both :-)
If you like coffee, you should definitely order a petit café at the end of the day and enjoy it while discussing what you experienced on board that day or even while planning the next day’s activities with your group.
