• Beaujolais: the Home of Golden Stones


The Beaujolais earth is primarily ochre limestone. The ochre limestone colours the Beaujolais scenery; it is in the stone buildings and scattered along the valleys, giving a luminous, warm and relaxing golden colour.

There is an old saying that three rivers flow in the capital of the Gaules: the Rhône, the Saone, and the Beaujolais. After a visit to the historic heart of Lyon, one is invited to stroll along the golden curved hills of Beaujolais, which are coated with vines and fed by a source that never dries up.
