  • Chateau life in the Beaujolais region

    Do you sometimes find it difficult to choose a wine? If you don't have a friendly local wine merchant or winemaker to hand, the best solution is to look for the château on the label! The wine inside is sure to be fit for a king!

    When it comes to Beaujolais wines, trust in conventional wisdom. There are more than 300 chateaus and country homes in the Beaujolais winegrowing area, many of which have vineyards.

  • The Pierres Dorées Exploring a piece of Tuscany in France

    In the south of the Beaujolais winegrowing area, there’s a hint of Italy in the air... If you happen to come across some dazzling villages while you’re out walking in the Rhône department then look no further, you’re in a little piece of Tuscany in France.  Yes, you’ve read it right!

    The Pierre Dorées in the heart of the winegrowing area is a group of villages with unusual and unique dwellings. Old buildings that add a touch of magic to the green landscapes of the Beaujolais countryside. If you’re looking for somewhere completely different, to really get away from it all, this is the place for you. Avanti!

  • The Beaujolais Wine Route

    Like any self-respecting winegrowing area, the Beaujolais region has its own wine route. It continues on from the Burgundy Wine Route, passing through the region’s main tourist attractions. All we can say is that there is nothing quite like this 140-km circuit across the ridges for tickling your taste buds and dazzling your eyes.

    From Chânes nearly all the way to Lyon, you'll receive a warm welcome in dozens of municipalities from locals who will be only too pleased to help you discover their heritage, wines and delicacies.
