A Grand day out in the green landscape of the vineyard - Private Tour


Discover the beautiful hilly landscapes of the Beaujolais. Beaujolais does not produce only Beaujolais Nouveau. The territory produces also full bodied and very high quality wines, which can be compared to Burgundy wines.

In this guided tour, you will see pretty villages which have given their name to "Crus" wines and light bodied wines. You will understand wine growing and wine-making, geography, history, traditions and know-how. Tastings can be included.

An absolutely charming tour!

Itinerary

By car, we go through the pretty villages of Beaujolais and in a wine cellar at a wine grower's house. I am flexible, I can arrange the tour after your needs.

Example from Lyon:

9:00 meeting at your hotel in Lyon
9:45 arrival at the first village Châtillon
Walking tour > 10:15
Drive to Le Bois d'Oingt, Bagnols, Frontenas, Moiré, Oingt, one of the most beautiful village in the Beaujolais.
10:30-11:15 visit of Oingt
11:15-11:30 drive to a wine cellar
11:30-12:30 wine tasting at a wine estate
12:30-14:00 lunch break in Oingt, in a semi-gastronomic restaurant
13:00-13:30 drive through villages: Bagnols, Theizé, Jarnioux, Cogny, Denicé, Saint-Julien, Montmelas-Saint-Sorlin, Salles-Arbuissonas
13:30-14:00 visit of Salles-Arbuissonas, a former abbey in the middle-ages
14:00-14:15 stop in a wine estate
15:30-16:30 return to Lyon

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Meeting point at your hotel (less than 30 miles from Lyon).

End location: It ends at your hotel in Lyon.

Duration: 8 hours

The weather can affect the duration. In September, it is the time of harvest, so that there are a lot of farm tractors on the roads. It can slow us down. If you would like to stop at more wineries, please let me know, in order to change the information on the tour. I am flexible, I can stop to take picture where you want if I can guarantee your safety. There is often a lot of traffic jam at the entrance of Lyon and it can delay your arrival at the hotel.

Transportation

A car is necessary to visit Beaujolais. I book a private car rental with driver for you. It is a Mercedes Viano with 6 seats

What’s Included

Other: - A cultural guided tour in the vineyard Beaujolais, and two wine tastings in two different wine cellars.
- Car rental with driver is included.
- Water bottles are included.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

50 euros - This is the price for the optional restaurant or snack for two persons.

What’s Extra

Other: The lunch is not included. But we will stop at a restaurant. I suggest the restaurant in Oingt "La Table du Donjon". Click here to see their website.

A Recent Review of this tour

Emilie was very cooperative in arranging an itinerary for the day based on our interests and requests. She arranged for a very pleasant lunch and visit to a local wine maker. Great introduction to the Beaujolais area. Would definitely recommend Emilie.
