Next you will visit the beautiful town of Noyers-sur-Serein, chosen by the French people as one of France’s most beautiful villages.

After dinner you will find one of Burgundy’s oldest wineries. Since 1453, Domaine Bersan has been a family-run winery. Meet Pierre-Louis, a winemaker of the 21st century, then explore the renowned cellars of Bersan.
