Let’s head to the north of Lyon and discover a very nice wine region with small hills and a light, fruity and gourmet wine full of character.
You will start your day with the South of Beaujolais, known as the Golden Stones area. It is on the limestone here full of iron oxide that the vines grow the Appellation Beaujolais. After crossing lovely villages surrounded by vines, visit a local wine estate. You will immediately be immersed in the friendly atmosphere of Beaujolais when you will meet the producer. You will taste several red wines but also white and maybe some rosés.
After a good lunch in a local restaurant, we head north and take the Crus Route. Here you will be able to observe the variety of landscapes that adds to the richness of this Terroir.
The 10 Crus follow and touch each other, however none is the same, each one has its specificity and unique taste. Come and taste them and discover how they will surprise
You will then visit another winery just as charming as the first one, where you will get to taste other wines with this beautiful cherry red colour and flavours of redcurrant, blackberry and raspberry.
