Wine Tasting in Lyon

5 22 Reviews | Add your review

The Beaujolais wine region is comprised of about 4,000 vineyards stretching across a 50,000-acre strip that starts just north of Lyon in the Saône Valley. The land was first cultivated by the Romans, and the appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designation was awarded to the wines in 1936; today, roughly 14 million cases of Beaujolais, Beaujolais-Villages and the Crus of Beaujolais are sold worldwide.

While Beaujolais may not be on the tip of everyone's tongue the way Champagne or Burgundy is, come November, it more often than not it passes everyone's lips. On the third Thursday of November is Beaujolais Nouveau day, an unofficial French holiday that celebrates the new Beaujolais wines, which goes from vine to bottle in four days. At midnight the corks are popped, and judgment is passed on this year's vintage.

For foodies heading to Lyon or for those looking for an experience that's not as touristy as Bordeaux or Champagne, Beaujolais is the perfect wine tasting adventure near Lyon. A Beaujolais Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Lyon is easily enough time to take in the gorgeous countryside, visit vineyards, partake in some great wine tasting sessions, and still be back in time for dinner.
