Lyon, Travel

Lyon: Le Beaujolais

28/07/2012

How is it that this is our last full day in Lyon already?

I got some silly souvenirs (shot glasses, more post cards, basically all stuff I don’t need) and then we went on the most phenomenal day trip. Le Beaujolais is basically wine country. There are vineyards everywhere and all you can see for miles is hilly green rows of plants growing the grapes to make their famous Beaujolais wine. 

It was raining so some of the photos aren’t so great but check them out anyway:

Then we went to a little wine cellar to do a wine tasting. They paired their rose wines with some sausages and the red wine with some cheeses. It was so delicious and I wish cheeses and sausages were even remotely the same in the USA. 

Update: I saw brie cheese in the supermarket and it said “product of France” and so I tried it. Definitely not as good as the French cheese.

Au revior (for now)
