Beaujolais Vineyard Outing

I apologize for not updating in over a month, but honestly nothing super exciting has happened.  I go to class and that's about it.  But this Sunday a group called Lyon International organized an international student outing to a vineyard int he beaujolais region!  So we all piled into buses and drove about half an hour outside Lyon into the beautiful French countryside to walk through the vineyard and taste the wine.

This was a chateau that an elderly woman owned, and when she died she donated the house and the fields to the Pasteur foundation for science.

Just in case you wanted proof I was there :)

Origins of Brouillette, perhaps?  We make a pretty good wine...

Awesome art gallery where we had our wine tasting.

We have a mount!

And now a bunch of pretty landscapes:

That's all for now! I'm leaving for Norway tomorrow for a week, so I'll have a bunch more pictures to post soon!  Love and miss you all!
