March 9, 2015, Napa, CA â€“Â Today we are moving our French office from Paris to Franceâ€™s capital of gastronomy, Lyon. While Paris is less than 2 hours away by TGV, the move to Lyon brings us closer to our clients in Burgundy, Beaujolais, RhÃ´ne Valley and Languedoc.
Lyon is Franceâ€™s third largest city and its second largest metropolitan area. It is a hub for economic innovation, especially in software and biotech. More importantly for Benson, it has a more edgy, vibrant wine, food and spirits scene. And as the capital of the RhÃ´ne-Alpes region, some are predicting it will be Franceâ€™s top oenotourisme destination by 2025.
