Spent a day on a bus tour of wine country, in Beaujolais, which is only 30 minutes outside Lyon. Very nice country, much like California wine regions, of course.
Start with a great stained glass image of wine picking. This is quite large, nearly wall size.
Stopped by some vineyards to pick a few grapes still on the vine.
The hills in wine country. Very pretty.
More hills and views.
An old press in the wine museum.
Relief map of the wine hills. All of this wine country lies on the side of the hills along the river.
Statue with grapes all around - hands, head, drink.
Our first winery stop, Morgon.
Old church made from yellow stones native to the area.
The best way to see the country - via baloon !
