Trail en C么te-R么tie

The event in a few words

For this fourth edition of the Trail in C么te-R么tie, we're taking you on a journey through the vineyards 馃崌 of one of the most exceptional appellations in our heritage: C么te-R么tie in the Auvergne-Rh么ne-Alpes region 馃嚝馃嚪.

But before you get to taste the literal fruits of the region 馃構, you'll metaphorically taste the challenge as you tackle the elevation gains 馃搱 of the surrounding vineyards adorned with the beautiful colors of fall 馃崅. You'll have several courses specially designed for your skill level to choose from 馃槍. On offer: 3锔忊儯 trail runs of 12 km, 24 km, and 45 km, along with 2锔忊儯 hikes of about 10 km and 15 km. Plus, the organizers have thought of some joys for the beginners too. Children/juniors 馃懄馃徏 will also have the chance to compete in one of the 4锔忊儯 races specially planned for them! So, whether you're young or old, a beginner or an expert, there鈥檚 something for everyone, and it's almost as satisfying as sipping a fine glass of wine! 馃嵎

So, let yourself be swept away into one of the 5锔忊儯 courses laid out for you starting from Ampuis, for the chance to weave through the plots of the Syrah grape variety and discover the two sides of the appellation: La C么te Brune 馃懇馃徎 and La C么te Blonde 馃懇馃徏. For a bit of history, it was Lord Maugiron 馃憫 who divided his estate between his two daughters, one blonde and the other brunette, to avoid any jealousy! Will you be able to distinguish between them when you taste? 馃 And yes, because afterwards, you can organize visits to the local cellars in the area to explore the local delights during tastings offered by the winemakers. But remember, drink responsibly! Or at least, make sure you鈥檝e eaten well 馃ぐ馃徎. And on that note, the organizers have thought of everything with a whole village of food trucks 馃殮 available to satisfy your hunger throughout the day 馃嵔. And after the (physical and digestive) challenges, you might find time to visit Vienne, the neighboring city, and enjoy its unique Gallo-Roman heritage 鈿旓笍.

We can't say it enough, these races are the perfect opportunity to get some exercise in a unique setting while enjoying fun, gastronomic, cultural, and exciting activities throughout the weekend 馃グ. You can crown your efforts with a wine that has been awarded multiple times and has been aged for more than 2,000 years 馃槷. Not a fan of wine? No worries! You鈥檒l likely enjoy visiting one of the region's historic monuments, from the Sainte-Baudille Church in Ampuis 鉀笍, which houses the relics of the patron saint of winemakers, to the St. Pierre Museum 馃柤锔 in Vienne, "the City of Art and History". And if you enjoy the ambiance, you can always come back in January to visit the Ampuis wine market! 馃彧

鈿狅笍 Excessive drinking is harmful to your health, drink in moderation.
