I'm pleased to show You this region in all the glory of fall!

close to Mont Brouilly, a very typic tiny "shelter" made of "golden stones": the main use was a storage for tools and protection during a storm

Close to Oingt, this used to be the laundry for the community. This one has been restored quite often and looks nice. A little river "feeds" this wash station. Having "flowing water" to wash the clothes was not given to everybody: it was luxu!s

I love the architecture of the houses here. They look massiv, stabil. And so they are, perhaps with a touch of "Middle Age"

This picture brings a testimonial of the very bad economical health of Beaujolais: the areas which look grey colored are vines which have been pulled because Beaujolais wine became hard to sell.

And now, the star, the heroe: le Gamay Noir! This one is a "rescapé"...here they don't really produce "ice wine" even if they could do it. But some winegrowers do it!

Well, the last one for today. So You get an idea what does Beaujolais looks like: a lot of little vines added into a gigantesc vine region.

Wonderful photo tour of a place I'm unlikely to visit. Particularly nice since we are regular consumers of their famous products!

Nice. Looks very much like the Tournon-sur-Rhone/Tain hermitage area.

You are right...both areas are close to eachother so they have a certain "family look"
Well, Tournon and Tain l'Hermitage are in the "Côtes du Rhône"(South of Lyon)...which is a bit different of Beaujolais. (Noth West of Lyon)"

My sister and brother-in-law have a home just above Tournon S Rhone. The resemblance is striking.

Thanks Quixdraw! I understand Your frustration but, if it’s any consolation, I have the same problem regarding Grand Canyon...and all the woody covered bridges. Don't forget, You have the big pleasure to taste/drink the products...unfortunately, California wines are really hard to get in Burgundy (patriotism or protectionisme?)
