While many associate Beaujolais with its main export – Beaujolais Nouveau – these wines are not the best of the region.  In fact, they are a far cry from it.

The best of Beaujolais lies in Cru Beaujolais, the upper vineyards of the region that sit on granite rock, creating wines of depth, breadth, and soaring beauty to rival anything else that Burgundy has to offer.

This tasting will showcase the best of the best from each Beaujolais Cru. We will explore the region’s rightful station of producing world-class wines.
