What you need to know before visiting Beaujolais wine region

What are the Beaujolais Nouveau wines? +

The Beaujolais Nouveau wines, apart from the big popular festival which they represent all over the world, are wines produced from the AOC Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages.

This is a mention reserved for red wines and rosé wines. They are the result of a precise and rigorous approach. In order to produce aromatic and fruity wines, the winegrowers carry out a short maceration (4 to 5 days maximum) which requires specific know-how. If the tank is racked too early, the wines will be too light and colorless. And conversely, the tannins will be too hard if the tank is drawn too late.

When to visit the Beaujolais region? +

The ideal period to see the sunny Beaujolais country is obviously the month of August. Spring is also pleasant for a stay in the region.

To live at best all the fervor of Beaujolais Nouveau, you understand, you must come after the third Thursday in November.

The essentials to know about Beaujolais

The Beaujolais country occupies approximately 160,000 hectares, between Lyon and Mâcon. 15,000 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of the region's 12 AOC wines. Moreover in Beaujo, nickname of the region of Beaujolais, we call the cru appellations of Beaujolais. New wine has been celebrated for millennia, this custom is as old as wine production. The phenomenon of Beaujolais Nouveaux developed in the 1950s. Indeed, a regulatory change abolished the staggering of wine releases. In 1985, a decree fixed the marketing of Beaujolais Nouveaux on the third Thursday of November to facilitate the sale of the 500,000 hectoliters produced that year. This date is still in effect today.


What does "Beaujolais Nouveau" mean?

The Beaujolais Nouveaux, apart from the great popular celebration they represent all over the world, are wines from the AOC Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages. This is a statement reserved for red wines and rosé wines. They are the result of a precise and rigorous approach. In order to produce aromatic and fruity wines, the winegrowers carry out a short maceration (no more than 5 days) which requires special know-how. If the tank is racked too early, the wines will be too light and colorless. And conversely, the tannins will be too hard if the tank is racked too late. Many wines from the Beaujolais region often receive good ratings and positive reviews.
