Beaujolais is a wine region of France located south from Bourgogne, it represents its southern extension. This area is located in a very particular position where the meeting of three climatic areas takes place: oceanic, Mediterranean in summer and continental in winter, a fusion which allows the region to enjoy an average temperate climate. Beaujolais wines are divided in 12 AOC: Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages and ten crus (Morgon, Régnié, Moulin à Vent, Côte de Brouilly, Brouilly, Juliénas, Saint-Amour, Chénas, Chiroubles and Fleurie). Almost the totality of wine production in Beaujolais is made of red wines mainly obtained from Gamay, red berried grape absolute protagonist of the region, capable of giving from simple and everyday wines to richer and more complex bottles. In lesser quantities are produced white beaujolais from chardonnay grape, rosé beaujolais and cremant. Beaujolais wines are commonly considered as simple and easy to drink wines, as a matter of fact they are very interesting products capable of offering an excellent quality/price ratio. In fact, the Beaujolais appellation is the only one, together with Champagne, which requires manual harvesting.
