Economy[edit]

Viticulture was the primary activity until the phylloxera infestation. The arrival of the railroad caused both the vineyards and the forges to decline due to outside competition.

Tourism[edit]

Lods is a village with two hotels and a campground. Outdoor activities include tennis, fishing, and canoeing. Also worth seeing are the Musée de la Vigne et du Vin viticulture museum and art gallery.
