La Roche Solutré, Solutré-Pouilly (Saône-et-Loire (71))


On the calcareous slopes of Solutré-Pouilly, just above the vineyards, is La Roche de Solutré, one of the most well-known sights in Saône-et-Loire. Wines produced in this area include Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran et Mâcon-villages. In 1866 the geologists Henry Testot-Ferry and Adrien Arcelin found thousands of bones of horses, bison and mamouths at the foot of the Roche. Today, understandably, this is quite an attraction, if not the easiest of places to negotiate.
