The Golden Stones area: the "source" of Beaujolais Nouveau

Travel to the Southern part of the Beaujolais Région where most of the Beaujolais Nouveau wine production is produced d by hundreds of small family wineries. Cross several quaint medieval towns built in yellow stones and admire beautiful medieval castles.
Capture the beauty of French Autumn with vineyards leaves changing of colours: feast your eyes with some yellow, red, brown, green...
Then, stop to visit Oingt, a picturesque town listed as one of the “156 Most Beautiful Villages in France” and learn about the Beaujolais "terroir".

Along this scenic drive, with your guide, discover the history of the Beaujolais Nouveau wine, its unique wine-making process and how everything started. Then, successively push the doors of 2 family wineries and in each of them taste the Beaujolais Nouveau wine or "primeur", production of the year.
Delight yourself with this young, fresh & fruity ruby nectar made from the Gamay grape and of course get the opportunity to taste other Beaujolais wines called "vins de garde", wines that you can aged several years in your cellar.
Slowly get into the atmosphere and let "the magic" and "spirit" of the Beaujolais Nouveau Festival taking over, when wine means conviviality, friendship, sharing and partying! (to be enjoyed in moderation, of course)
