South Burgundy wine route: Mâcon and Beaujolais

At the foot of the Roche de Solutré and the Roche de Vergisson, Pouilly-Fuissé, the most prestigious vineyard in the Mâcon area, is yours to discover.

Stretching over the communes of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré, this vineyard has achieved international renown. Its wine’s crisp, lively, complex flavour is aged in oak casks, thus acquiring hints of grilled almonds or hazelnut.

With the Château de la Barge as your starting point, the south Burgundy Mâconnais and Beaujolais wine route will take you on a voyage of discovery through cellars and vaults where you will have the opportunity to taste our exquisite red and white wines.
