Full description
Discover the Beaujolais wine region north of Lyon on this guided day trip with included tastings. Enjoy the scenic landscape of small hills and vineyards, and relish light, fruity, and gourmet wines full of character. From the meeting point in Lyon, start your day in south Beaujolais, known as the Golden Stones area. It's here, on the limestone full of iron oxide, that the vines of the Beaujolais Appellation grow. Cross lovely villages surrounded by vines before visiting a local wine estate. Become immersed in the friendly atmosphere of Beaujolais when you meet the producer, and taste several red wines, as well as white and maybe some rosés wines.  Soak up some of the wine with a tasty lunch in a local restaurant (not included), then head further north to take the Crus route. As you go, observe the variety of landscapes that adds to the richness of this terroir. The 10 Crus follow and touch each other but each one has its specificity and unique taste. After exploring the Crus route, stop at another winery just as charming as the first. Savor tastings of other wines showcasing a beautiful cherry red color and flavors of redcurrant, blackberry, and raspberry. Come and taste them, and discover how they will surprise you.
