This is an exciting new import for both South Africa and Frogitt & Vonkel.
Beaujolais is one of the world’s most famous wine regions, lying by Lyon in France. The cultivar endorsed by the appellations here is Gamay, a grape grown by only a few SA producers.
Domaines Dominique Piron is a pioneering producer, and one of the “Top Guns” from the region. The family has a history of wine production dating back fourteen generations. This year Dominique was voted President of the Growers Association.
The wines of Beaujolais are stylistically ‘refreshing’ and light, with “Cru” Beaujolais typically best drunk 2 to 3 years from vintage.
