Séverine will share her 2 passions with you - horses and oenology - on this microadventure across the Chalonnais or Beaujolais hillsides. Let's go…
Learn all about the fascinating history of a thousand-year-old winegrowing terroir on horseback.
That's what you can expect from this day trip that combines horse riding and wine tourism in southern Burgundy. You don't need to be an experienced horse rider to make the most of this microadventure. Séverine, your guide, can adapt the outing to all levels of ability. Horse riding across a winegrowing terroir, an opportunity to talk to a passionate wine expert... You can expect a highly original experience into the world of Burgundy wines!
Vines, horses and a wonderful feeling of freedom
The light morning mist is starting to dissipate. It's time to get on the saddle. The huge Rock of Solutré stands at an altitude of 493 metres in the distance. Faced with this thousand-year-old landscape, you will really feel a connection with your horse. You'll be riding across an ocean of colourful vines. If you're feeling daring, you can choose to ride at a gallop, others might prefer to amble along at a slow, regular pace.
As you ride along, you'll feel your worries subside... Just let your horse guide the way, for a feeling of ultimate freedom.
Meet a winegrower and taste their wines
You've explored the vines, it's now time to taste the delicious wines of the Mâconnais. This beautiful terroir of southern France, that you have been lucky enough to explore on horseback, produces mainly white wines. At the estate, the winegrower will guide you through a tasting of Pouilly-Fuissé, a dry white wine with delicate, subtle flavours.
Where are we staying?
Your experience will be centred around wine, conviviality and relaxation at this guesthouse run by Romain, the owner of a winegrowing estate that has been in the same family for 5 generations.
Added bonus? A unique view of the Macônnais vineyards!
