Planning a little trip through Europe which will put me for some time in Burgundy.
I am used to US wineries, which have a tasting room at the vineyard/winery and while you may not be able to visit the cellar without a prior invitation you can certainly come in for the tasting and purchase on site.
From the research I've done online I've only found one winery that offers on site wine tastings, which out of dozens in the area it seems odd. I do understand that some of the Grand Cru producing wineries may only offer on site visits to distributors or critics but I don't think that they are the only ones producing.
So how would one arrange the tastings in Burgundy if not at the wineries? (Champagne and Alsace would be a plus.)
