Gamay first originated in the village of Gamay, south of Beaune in 1365, After being outlawed in 1395 by the Duke, it was found to flourish in Beaujolais!
The gamay grape accounts for 97% of all grapes under vine in Beaujolais. While the region has seen turmoil over the years, there is a current renaissance from progressive natural wine makers. AOC 1937
