Maconnais Meets Beaujolais
This shore tour is available to book for all confirmed group members. For a complete description and pricing, contact Food & Wine Trails.
The town of Mâcon enjoys a unique location in Burgundy as its southern most region while simultaneously overlapping the northern port of the Beaujolais region. This tour is designed to show you both. As you explore the Mâcconnais region, you will have the opportunity to taste some excellent white wines from prominent appellations such as Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran. Often overshadowed by the whites from the Côte d'Or to the north, these wines offer enormous value. Due to Mâcon's proximity to Beaujolais, you will also experience the vivid and fresh reds from the Gamay grape that has become synonymous with this region.
Highlights from your excursion will include:
• Private sommelier guide
• Tour and tasting at a local cheese farm with paired regional wines
• Tastings at two premium wineries including a wine-paired lunch at one of the estates
• Luxury coach with bottled water
