The short story of a vast project
At long last, the city known as the Capital of the Gauls boasts its very own wine guide: The Décanté. This venture was set in motion in 2014 and came into being 3 years later. The purpose behind this free handbook is to shed light on the good addresses regarding wine in Lyon and make them available to all. Mainly intended for students, the Décanté aims to become the reference guide for the city’s wine scene. As the enterprise shifted along the stages of creation, it evolved from a fuzzy idea to the many steps of canvassing and resulted in the emergence of a real visual identity. This field guide to the good deals around Lyon has truly had time to settle… and will – most certainly! – improve with age.
This handbook covers several topics:
KNOWLEDGE • WINE CELLARS/MERCHANTS • WINE BARS • FOOD & WINE PAIRINGS • MAPS OF THE FRENCH VINEYARDS • GLOSSARY • QUOTES • MAP OF LYON REFERENCING THE TRADESMEN
