Hi -
I'm going on this on Aug 9th. I'll come back to this thread to post any relevant info after I get back.

Are you flying into CDG? I found it a bit hard to get a train to Dijon. You might want to look into options sooner rather than later. I don't even think the train runs on my departure date from Dijon back to Paris.

Hi folks not done the trip but I spent the summer of 2010 in the area and I hope this helps::
If you can't get a train from Paris, don't forget to check flights to Lyon or maybe even Geneva, both are also pleasant enough cities if you have extra time unless of course Paris is on your wish list to.
Remember to stamp your ticket before you get the on the train, although some ticket offices will do this for you its worth being sure.
Check your train times on the Rail Europe site-google it.
Wine tastings can vary, but my preference is always a Macon Village white.
Eat french food until you burst, thats what this area is all about!
It can get quite cold at night, so take a couple of warm things with you and a rain jacket.
Relax and enjoy the scenery, its exceedingly pretty.
