Travel through the heart of the Beaujolais “vintages”

If you’re thinking of taking a trip through the beautiful Beaujolais vineyards, here are a few tips on tastings, eatings and sleepings…

Great Tastings…

It’s rare to find a decent bar with plenty of good wines at a reasonable price. Here you can choose from 10 vintages with a glass costing from a very affordable 1.30€ to 3€. They also serve delicious food. – Le Bourg, 69820 Fleurie: Tel 04 74 69 00 23

In the heart of this famous village you’ll find over 30 wineries present. The prices are the same as on the estates and the choice of 3 new vintages is available every week.
