Enjoying an attractive location close to the Beaujolais hills, Mâcon is Burgundy's southernmost town and a major name in the local wine trade. The town grew initially as a communications post between the French Kingdom and the Holy Roman Empire. Mâcon then thrived and became wealthy thanks to customs dues on this border. By the late Middle Ages the town was making considerable use of the extensive vineyards surrounding it, and continued to prosper as a result of this.

Today Mâcon attracts a number of tourists wishing to visit the Wine Road of Mâconnais, which celebrates the town's history and rich architectural heritage, of course in addition to its internationally-renowned wines. The vast majority of wines made here come from the Chardonnay grape, and as such almost all of the wines are white.

Provence and The Elegant Rhône
G Franklin
5 stars
“ Third time with GRJ but first time on a river cruise with them. Everything 5 star as you would expect from our English tour operator, backed up by the Austrian cruise ship on the French waterways! Superb dining on an International menu and the crew did manage to include a local Provencal menu on one lunchtime. We chose to fly to Lyon from Luton rather than train from London and appreciated a private minibus to transfer to the ship. Nice leisurely excursions each day and I really enjoyed the new Tour App., but would have liked our flight tickets more readily available rather than chasing for an emailed pdf the week before our flight. Thoroughly recommended.
