The vineyard is located around the hill of Château de Montmelas.
In 1566, the Marquis, our ancestor, bought the castle to live in.Little by little, the estate increased to become the main activity nowadays.
Since then his descendants have worked to make it producing great Beaujolais Villages wines.
Set within the Beaujolais Villages appellation, the Château de Montmelas’ estate covers a 50ha-large vineyard (120 acres).
Vines grow on rising sun and south slopes, mainly made of granite.
Vines are grown under environmental friendly agriculture and harvest is hand made.
The grape of our red Beaujolais-Villages is exclusively Gamay, a black grape producing white flesh. It gives fruity and structured wines to which the various soils add their own signature. These round, greedy and convivial wines are easy to drink and enjoyable.
Rare pearl of the region, our white Beaujolais-Villages, is extracted from Chardonnay. This grape gives supple dry wines that delight connoisseur of wines.
