    Beaucoup de facteurs interviennent dans la qualité finale d’un vin. Parmi eux, il y a la date de récolte qui signifie souvent l’aboutissement d’une dure année de travail pour les vignerons. Mais comment déterminer le moment où les baies ont atteints leur pleine maturité et seront à même de produire un vin d’une qualité optimale ? C’est sur cet aspect de la viticulture que le réseau maturation du Beaujolais intervient depuis 26 ans déjà.

    The quality of any wine originates with the vine. That’s why winegrowers take such good care of their vines throughout the year with different jobs that need to be done in each of the 4 seasons. It’s like a fascinating dance choreographed by the winegrower.

  • The Beaujolais Wine Route

    Like any self-respecting winegrowing area, the Beaujolais region has its own wine route. It continues on from the Burgundy Wine Route, passing through the region’s main tourist attractions.

    From Chânes nearly all the way to Lyon, you'll receive a warm welcome in dozens of municipalities from locals who will be only too pleased to help you discover their heritage, wines and delicacies.
