Admire the beautiful villages, landscapes and taste the exceptional wines that are produced using organically grown grapes.

In the south, you will discover the Golden Stones charming little villages, chapels and wash houses are divine in the reflections of the sun. Their yellow ochre colour is absolutely unique and earned the name of Beaujolais Tuscany given to the region.
