Beaujolais is a wine making region in central France, just south of Burgundy and home to the well known Beaujolais Nouveau. Almost all of the eye catching produce from this region is red wine predominantly using the Gamay grape, though there are a few exceptions that use Chardonnay grapes.
The region has excellent conditions for growing with its vast amounts of sunshine and granite based soils making it a perfect structure to grow the wines.
Only manual harvesting is allowed in the region. Utilising a handpicking method means that before being vatted, whole bunches of the grapes are sorted to remove any bad ones. This wine-making method is specific to the Beaujolais region.
