The Chateau de Pizay is one of the oldest and most highly regarded estates in Beaujolais. Since the Middle Ages, the wines and the grounds have been appreciated for their beauty. Today, in addition to a long legacy of winemaking excellence, the Chateau is also a luxurious 4 star hotel.
The vineyards stretch from Morgon to Regnie for a total of 100 acres, and are composed of granite with a sandy topsoil. The current director, Pascal Dufaitre uses stainless steel, semi-carbonic fermentation and other modern fermentation methods to preserve the freshness and acidity that is the hallmark of this renowned estate.
