The Roche de Solutré is above all a remarkable viewing point, exhilarating even.
The Mâcon vineyards in the foreground, the Saône valley, the Alps and Mont Blanc on a clear day…. A veritable feast for the eyes of the adventurous explorer that you are and not just at the summit. The climb offers amazing effects of perspective, as the Roche de Vergisson, (the Roche de Solutré's little sister), seems to move throughout the ascent. The 45 minute walk, starting in the village of Solutré-Puilly, is quite demanding. After a good work-out for your knees, next stop is a work-out for your elbow at the Atrium in Solutré's village square. This convivial wine cellar designed by the Pouilly Fuissé wine-producers promises in one tasting to bring you on a tour of 4 villages, 15 types of soil, 200 climates and 250 producers of the appellation. A great spot.
