Styles after the famous wines from France's renowned Beaujolais winemaking region, our Cru International French Gamey Style features the primary red wine grape grown in Beaujolais, the Gamay Noir. Known to be a cross between Pinot noir and the ancient white variety Gouais, Gamay is easier to grow than Pinot Noir and excquisitely ripens two weeks earlier.


Beaujolais winemakers use Gamay grapes to create a fruity wine by using a technique called carbonic maceration. Instead of being processed, grapes are piled into a vat where the bottom ones are crushed by the weight on the grapes on top. This juice ferments, and eventually causes fermentation to begin inside the skins of the unbroken grapes. The result is a uniquely fresh, fruity wine low in tannins and consumed young. Our French Gamay Style wine was created to emulate a similar taste and style and does not require bottle aging!


This light-medium bodied red wine is best consumed in its youth. Cherries and plums fill the nose while sweet cherry follows through to the palate, where it lingers gracefully.


With its high acidity, French Gamay Style is a heavenly pairing for a creamy, mild & tangy Herbed Goat Cheese.
