Close to Lyon, Beaujolais is a living and bright land, remarkable for its villages built of yellow ocher stone, which plays with the reflections of the sun.
Beaujolais region is located in the north of Lyon in, which extends into the north of the Rhône region, in the south of Saône-et-Loire and in the northeast of the Loire. It is an old French province, the historic capital of which is Beaujeu and the current capital is Villefranche-sur-Saône. Beaujolais wine is a French wine with a protected designation of origin (AOC). The appellation covers the entire Beaujolais vineyard and offers six different products, including Beaujolais Nouveau and Beaujolais Supérieur. It is made almost exclusively from the Gamay grape for red wines and Chardonnay for white wines (the latter represent only 3% of total wine production).

They will be pleased to introduce to You the history of their domains, the secrets and the different stages of wine production.
