We started on time, which was great. It was very private, with total of 8 participants + driver. We made total of 3 stops: Stop #1: pick nick style breakfast with wine tasting and pastry (great way to start your morning). We stopped on the top of the hill overlooking the beautiful valley, vineyards and rolling hills. Stop #2: historic village with a great views of the valley, learned about the history of the region and walked around a bit. Stop #3: winery itself with a great explanation of the wine planting techniques, types of the grapes / wines produced along with the wine tasting and pairing with cheese, salami, sausage and pork skins. Our experience was completed by visiting the wine store to purchase the bottles for home....

Visit to the winery was excellent but also some room for improvents

Winery was excellent. In the forst wine tadting the wines were quite warm, they could have been chilled in a cooler, now they all tasted bad. Ian the host was quite silent, hevdidnt introduce the attendees to each other or encourage people to conversation; Ian could have been more talkative

Beautiful scenic tour with fun & informative tasting!

My sisters & I thoroughly enjoyed the Beaujolais half day tour. It was their first time in the Rhône-Alps region and one of their first times at a wine tasting or a vineyard. We all have varied levels of wine knowledge but equally appreciated the information given about the viticultural & vinification process of wine by Ian & Étienne. Oingt was a beautiful middle point & showed a unique aspect to the region’s history. The whole tour was very enjoyable.
