Half a day into the “sunny” South-Burgundy. We’ll discover the home land of the famous Lamartine, the village of Chardonnay and the Roche de Solutré. The tour will be organised around tastings at some of the best wineries of the region.
Planning of the half-day:
Start at 2PM, we’ll hit the road towards the northern Mâcon wine region home of the Chardonnay. It is this very Chardonnay that still covers the hills of the Mâconnais today. After a stop in these beautiful surroundings, a first tasting will wake your budtastes up.
Then, we’ll go to Solutré and it’s rock surrounded by vine, the occasion to know more about this surprising geological phenomenon. Finally, a second wine maker will welcome you to share his/her passion and to taste his/her wines. We’ll be back to the starting point around 6PM.
