A vineyard known for its fruity red wines
This wine region covers more than 22 000 hectares and has one particularity : it is subject to three different climates (oceanic, mediterranean and continental) that may vary depending on the season. And if from the administrative point of view this vineyard is attached to Burgundy, it stands out to a certain extent. For example, today it has its own appellations, AOC Beaujolais is without any doubt the best-known. Unlike Burgundy, the wine production has mostly developed on this territory starting from the XVII century. Its origins date certainly back to the Roman empire, but several centuries will pass until this activity becomes important. It's after the Second World War that Beaujolais became successful. Besides, it's a pity to limit this vineyard with its young vintages. We can also find there some Grand Crus and long-keeping wines that are worth just as much as those from the other regions !
