Beaujolais & Food
One of three rivers!
Once thriving and celebrated round the world the Beaujolais wines are sometimes today looked down upon. Laying in between Burgundy and Côtes du Rhone this region still produces some amazing white, rosé and red wines and benefits from the culinary influences of the French Capital of Gastronomy: Lyon.
Starting with Beaujolais Nouveau and traveling thru the different crus you will take a tasty trip in the vineyards of France's most renowned producer of Gamay.
First discovering the ambiance, we'll then lead you thru the different wines' profiles and draw an aromatic map of the expressions of Beaujolais wines. From then on it will all be about food as we'll share pairings from around the world just to make your mouth water before lunchtime.
