THE VARIETY

Gamay

Primarily grown in Beaujolais, France, Gamay is incredibly delicate with floral aromas, earthy undertones and is very easy to drink. Well suited to cooler climates, the variety is also grown in places such as New Zealand, Canada and Oregon. Light-bodied and highly aromatic, it’s great for an aperitif and it goes magnificently with French cuisine. Riper, fruit-driven new world Gamay goes very well with south-east Asian dishes too.  
THE REGION

Beaujolais

Beaujolias is located north of Lyon in eastern France, overlapping Burgundy in the north and Rhône in the south. Located inland yet near enough to the Mediterranean Sea, the region experiences a temperate climate. The Gamay grape is used to make all Beaujolais wines with the exception of white Beaujolais, or Beaujolais blanc, which is made of Chardonnay grapes.
