Private Beaujolais wine tour with a French sommelier & Michelin star lunch
I offer you a day as I will share it with friends connoisseurs of wine and gastronomy. It is preferable that we discuss beforehand in order to plan the best possible day according to your desires. I offer tailor-made wine stays and the differentiating element is that I invite you to meet winegrowers whose doors are usually closed. You will thus not carry out a classic wine tourism offer but rather a day of tasting of niche wines during which you will be able to taste, for example, old vintages that cannot be found on the market in the company of the winegrowers who vinified the wines. Knowing that the winegrowers you will meet have viticulture and winemaking as their profession, I will be your interlocutor to offer a perfect translation of the terms of the wines and thus be able to offer you all the keys to understanding the wines and the Beaujolais vineyards. I also take care of reserving you a table for lunch in a Michelin-starred restaurant. FYI, I graduated from WSET3.
