Chateau de Pizay

Since the Middle Ages the fine wines of the Château de Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers. Noble descendants of the aristocracy of selected Crus and vinified with every respect given to tradition, these wines are tasted all over the world. The layout of the site reminds one of a Roman villa and, indeed, there is an Roman road passing by. In 1030 the name Pizay was mentioned for the first time in the charters of the Abbey de Cluny. In 1070, a surrounding wall was erected by the Lords of Pizay followed by a robust keep built in the 14th century. A garden in the french style was added in the 18th century, completing the exquisite charm of the estate.

The Château includes a four-star hotel with 64 rooms and a gourmet restaurant. This is an ideal place to discover the charming pleasure of the Pays Beaujolais.

Beaujolais

 

Beaujolais is an important wine region in eastern France, famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from the Gamay grape. It is located to the south of Burgundy, of which it is sometimes considered to be a part, despite being within the Rhone administrative region.

 

Beaujolais is one of the few regions in the world to be so focused on a single grape variety (Gamay). Pinot Noir is also used in small quantities in red and rosé wines. Although best known for its red wines, the region also produces white Beaujolais Blanc, from Chardonnay and Aligote.

 

There are several forms of red Beaujolais wines: standard Beaujolais (including Beaujolais Superieur), Beaujolais Villages, and the characterful, youthful Beaujolais Nouveau. The region's highest-quality wines are those of the ten Beaujolais 'crus' – ten vineyard areas long recognized as the finest in the area. Each of these ten (Brouilly, Chenas, Chiroubles, Cote de Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent, Regnie and Saint-Amour) has its own appellation title.
