A visit to the wine making region of Beaujolais is a meditative activity. The landscape here at the hills of Beaujolais is so wonderful, so peaceful that you can spend hours looking to those lovely vineyards and the shadows they create. Not to mention the vast number of vineyards you can visit. Just in the doorstep of Lyon this area definitely deserves a proper visit.
And yes, the wines… Well, much can be said, after all this is a world famous wine producing region. Yet, I know my place so won’t speculate on this and that. But strictly recommend you to get to know producers or at least attend some tasting events. Amongst all Beaujolais Crus; Juliénas and Fleurie were the ones we ended up trying most.
