Beaujolais Crus Wines & Castles - Afternoon - From Lyon in small group tours
From US$102.69
Overview
Spend an afternoon sampling delicious Beaujolais in the Crus wine region. Ride by striking scenery like the Mont Brouilly volcano and charming towns like Régnié, Morgon, and Fleurie. Take in views of the region from La Madone Chapel, then head to a family winery to learn about wine production and sample different wines. Visit a larger Chateau for an atmospheric tasting in a cellar filled with oak barrels.
What to Expect
Afternoon: Beaujolais Wine Road & Terroir
At 2:00 pm, your 8-seater minibus leaves Place Bellecour in Lyon to the Northern Beaujolais called CRUS wine region.
Start the journey travelling on the beautiful Beaujolais "Route des Vins" and with your guide learn about the "terroir" (french philosphy for wine) and the different characteristics of the Beaujolais "crus" wines appellations. 
Pass the Mont Brouilly, a strikingly beautiful dormant volcano covered by secular vineyards and cross the famous wine towns of Régnié, Morgon & Fleurie. 
Then, Stop at La Madone Chapel and enjoy a breathtaking panaroma of the Beaujolais wine region: on clear days, you may have the chance to see the Alps and the Mount Blanc!
Visit of a Beaujolais family winery & Château winery Estate
At 3:30 pm, push the door of a small family winery, meet a passionate wine-maker and learn the different steps of the unique wine making process of Beaujolais called "semi-carbonic" maceration. 
Then, go to the nicely decorated caveau (wine-tasting room) to enjoy several crus Beaujolais wines in a fun and friendly atmosphere!
Travel again on the Beaujolais wine road to reach a Chateau Wine Estate and enter a magnificent cellar full of oak barrels. 
Wine-taste several crus wines coming from different "terroirs" of the Beaujolais in this amazing cellar setting. Take your time to savor these beautiful Crus wines as your guide describe them and tell you about their aromas, balance and complexity ...
At 6:30 pm, we will drop you off in Lyon Bellecour Square.   
Just unforgettable!

Excellent visit to small vineyards

Had a great trip with Olivier. We explored a medieval town and visited two lovely vineries where we sampled wines you dont usually find elsewhere, for which the highlight for me was Gamay
