Agrotourism is something that has been part of wine culture for a very long time, but is seldom mentioned. Besides wine, agrotourism activities include olive farming, fruit picking, honey making, beer brewing, cheese tasting, fishing, horse riding...This is the philosophy that Karine and Cyril Alonso are putting out with their tiny 1.5ha property in Marchampt, Beaujolais (just west of Brouilly). They evolve in an “eco-lieu” surrounded by 450 ha of forest where the living soils and biodiversity create precise and expressive zero-zero wines full of energy.
