Grape Picking in Beaujolais
Around 9:00 a.m., your group is picked up in Lyon and transferred by minibus/coach to the beautiful Beaujolais wine region.
Upon arrival, participants meet our passionate winegrower who presents the morning's “surprise” team building activity.
After a short initiation into the art of harvesting, pairs are formed, seals and secateurs are given to the participants and the grape picking can begin!
For 30-40 minutes, the group walks through the rows of vines and cuts grapes in a friendly atmosphere. Photos required!
Then it is time to return to the estate, cases of grapes are then unloaded and placed in a circle: participants will have the honor and happiness of stomping the freshly picked bunches. Unique experience!
Around 11:45 am, it is aperitif time, the group is invited to taste a white and rosé wine from the family estate.
For lunch, participants go upstairs to savor the delicious traditional cuisine of the harvest prepared by the winemaker's wife. On the menu, Beaujolaise salad, coq au vin and dessert, all accompanied by red wines from the property.
In the afternoon, several activities are proposed to the group, such as a small pétanque tournament, a visit of Oingt medieval town or a beautiful walk in the middle of the vineyards.
Around 5:00 pm, the group is dropped off in Lyon, it is the end of an unforgettable “Harvest” Team Building day!
Option: the harvest team building activity can be just half-day in the morning, or in the afternoon with the possibility of having dinner in the evening.
