We love our French Burgundy wines and have delighted in visiting many of the wine makers around our holiday rental homes in the heart of French Burgundy wine country. Of course, we can't get there now, but if you're like us, you're craving some Burgundy goodness.
We love buying directly from the Burgundy wine makers to enjoy wines we can't get in the US or to get wines shipped from France at a lower price than buying locally. The domaines throughout Burgundy are offering holiday specials right now, and with COVID they are even offering shipping deals.
We monitor promotional emails from the wine makers in Burgundy and some wine shops around Meursault, Beaune, Pommard, Puligny Montrachet, and along the Route des Grands Crus. We'll keep updating this page as new wine discounts are announced.
Wine makers in France ship within the EU and internationally, so whether you're in the US or Australia... you can enjoy exceptional French wine for your holiday celebrations (at a great deal.) Pro tip: Did you know if you are outside the EU, you save 20% because producers don't charge VAT on purchases shipping outside the EU? That usually covers the cost of shipping. Depending on where you are, shipping can take a few weeks, so order for your holiday celebrations early.
Chateau de Pommard is offering discounts and free shipping (over a certain order amount) on wines that pair perfectly with Thanksgiving dinners. If you order by Nov 17, they'll do their best to get it to you before Turkey Day.
Chateau de Pommard also offers virtual wine tasting and food/wine pairing classes. Go to Chateau de Pommard

The Cook's Atelier is a workshop and haven for all things food and wine. Located in Beaune, the team curates wine lists, beautiful cooking items, and vintage French home finds. They have curated several "collections" of hard to find wines. The prices are not at a discount, but the ability to gather these combinations in one easy package and have them shipped internationally is a special find, so we've included them in the list.
The Cook's Atelier is offering free international shipping on their non-wine items from November 14-21, so if you want to surprise someone with a genuine French kitchen gift this, year, check them out.
