  • When?: Wednesday 8th June, 7:30pm sharp
  • Where?: The Fine Wine Room at Le Pont Milsons Point, Sydney
  • Why?:  Learn why this region is becoming so popular from a passionate expert on the subject
  • Hosted by: Our very own Beaujolais guru Robyn French

Beaujolais ranks as one of the most exciting and progressive wine regions in the world today. Fine wine consumers have now acknowledged this resurgence in quality through insatiable demand. The gamay grape’s inherent expressive qualities, combined with a new generation of artisan winemakers who know how to handle it properly, has lead to a sharp rise in overall quality and increasingly a multitude of world class wines.

This will be an exploration of some of the most well known villages in Beaujolais – and what differentiates them – by tasting wines from some of the region’s most highly regarded and exciting vignerons. Vine age, site and winemaking ethos are all important in shaping the finished wine and when handled carefully the results can be breathtaking, and certainly more wallet-friendly than the wines from Burgundy.

What’s more, the best examples of Cru Beaujolais have the ability to age and improve a lot longer than many think. All this and more to be covered over the course of the evening!
