Itinerary Details

Operated by: Wine Tasting LYON | JEANGUYOT Wine Experts

The goal of this wine tasting is for you to discover and understand the French vineyard in the company of a French wine expert.

The approach of the French vineyard, the vinification as well as the food and wine pairing will be explained throughout this moment. The sommelier will stay by your side throughout the tasting to answer your questions and share his knowledge about wine.

During more than two hours, you will taste 7 different wines (the great majority of the wines come from regions close to Lyon, namely Beaujolais, the Rhone Valley and the Jura), always matched with unpasteurized cheeses (made from raw milk) and organic charcuterie and fresh bread. All the proposed products are of great quality and worked by craftsmen of Lyon.

There is enough to eat during this moment, in other words, you don't need to plan a lunch or a dinner, I promise!

This tasting is also tailor-made, if you wish for example to taste a wine of a particular vintage, it is possible - why not a good 1964?
