Beaujolais Quick Guide:
Beaujolais is the name of a little area in France just south of Burgundy. It’s one of the few wine regions of France that doesn’t pretend to be fancy. In fact, much of the Gamay wine Beaujolais produces is sold (and gulped) before the harvest year is over.
Beaujolais is a light red wine made with Gamay Noir grapes.
