This tour was fabulous! While on business in Lyon this half day adventure fit perfect into our schedule. We visited two wineries and tasted more than 5 wines at each winery. We toured the vineyards and production areas to learn about wine making. We also saw some of the amazing Rhône valley. Julie was professional but also kind and helpful at every stop.

The name of this cheese is derived from the terms ‘Rigol’ or ‘Rigot’, which refer to the many streams that descend the slopes of the Pilat massif. It is made using know-how that has been handed down over the generations.
