Winemaker, a profession and a craft that is passion
The fruit of patiently matured know-how, the Beaujolais vinegrowing method bears witness to vinegrowing expertise that has taken on a patina over time.
Generation after generation draw on the knowledge of their forefathers, men and women for whom it was and is important to hand their profession down.
Mainly in their forties, the winemakers of today are preparing for their succession as a family.
The 3 000 Beaujolais wine estates are very often quite modest in size, covering from 4 to 10 ha.
Work on a human scale. Throughout the seasons the vinegrower winemakers tend the ranks of vines in their care and their product from the plants themselves and the soil to the cellar and the bottle.
