Terroirs Originels, the group of independent Beaujolais
vignerons whose current releases I reviewed in Beaujolais 2013 looking

map for route planning.
Along the way they promise the full co-operation of 11 wine
farms to visit (nine in Beaujolais and two in the Mâconnais), 12 restaurants (with
full details of style and opening times), seven places to stay ranging from bed
and breakfast through gîtes to hotels, and three boutiques selling local
