They have a saying in the Beaujolais region: ‘In May do as you please’. But it could just as easily be ‘A healthy mind in a healthy body… with a glass of wine in hand!’

Spring is conducive to foodie walks and hikes in among the vines of the Beaujolais region. When you take a love of nature and mix it with an enthusiasm for winegrowing, grass becomes glass.

There are vineyard discovery walks for all fitness levels in a number of municipalities in the region.

Foodie trails in Marcy-sur-Anse

This sun-lit village in Pierres Dorées country offers a walking trail combined with visits to four wineries. This tour will set your taste buds alight as you find out about the different Beaujolais appellations, accompanied for example by split pea gazpacho with farmhouse bacon and goats cheese or free-range stuffed quail with shallot confit.

The Promenade Gourmande in Chiroubles

As everyone knows, walking gives you an appetite. As summer draws nearer, the days get longer as does the walking circuit in the municipality of Chiroubles. 

Five kilometres of food and wine tasting in the heart of the vines and forest await you in July. Imagine yourself drinking in the fabulous views of the Alps and surrounding areas while sipping a tasty glass of Chiroubles served with other local produce. 

Take a relaxing break as you contemplate the 360 hectares of vines growing on the granite hillsides of the Chiroubles appellation.

Charrois Gourmands in Lantignié

Seven or eight kilometres on the clock from Lantignié! Take a stroll around the “charrois” in Langinié with a spring in your step and a joyful heart. 

What is a charroi? It’s a typical Beaujolais word for the paths between the vines. As an informed amateur, you’ll be able to see the grapes growing up close on AOC Beaujolais Villages territory. Every 1.5 km, your efforts will be rewarded with a food and drink treat, and by the end of the walk you will have eaten a full meal. 

It is a picturesque gastronomic walk and once done you’ll be hooked. You’ll want to come back every year in June.
