Chateauneuf du Peuple

The Volkswagen of wine bars

Located in Vieux Lyon, well away from the crowds of tourists, this establishment is aptly named. It is to wine bars what the Volkswagen was to cars: accessible to all and unpretentious!

Whether you like a dry white or a full-bodied red, Mahdi (the manager, who is obsessed with wine and jazz), will find a wine to suit your tastes, and may even give you a surprise by steering you away from your more usual territory.

The selection of natural wines is focussed on craft production, for all budgets, and can be accompanied by platters of delicious food chosen to match your drink (bien sûr!).

Mahdi and his wine bar – Châteauneuf du Peuple – are bring wine tasting to the people and we can’t get enough!


Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
