Each year, the 75 hectares of vineyards that surround the château produce 5 very different wine :
An enticing Beaujolais red...
Deliberately teasing, cheerful, light, fruity and very drinkable, it really delights the taste buds and caresses the palate. This affable wine adds a little happiness to each hour of the day.
An enchanting Morgon...
The flagship of the vineyard, this full-bodied, robust and powerful wine is readily distinctive through the splendour of its garnet-red robe and strong personality allowing it to be kept for year upon year.
Régnié, the tenth vintage
Château de Pizay owns a share-cropping that produces archetypal wines which stand out thanks to their raspberry aromas.
A charming Beaujolais white...
This rare jewel in Beaujolais country, with its exquisite delicateness, is somewhat the hidden side of the Pizay vineyards, the gem of the Château. Its bright robe and subtle aroma are so unexpected that, from the very first moment, it is love at first sight...
Brouilly, Château de Saint-Lager
The fresh, young robe is graced by the sparkle of ruby. The nose is dominated by aromas of very ripe small fruit. Supple and tender, its appeal is in its opulent roundness.
The entire harvest is vinified, aged and bottled at the Château.
Since the Middle Ages the fine wines of the Château de Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers. Noble descendants of the aristocracy of selected Crus and vinified with every respect given to tradition, these wines are tasted all over the world.
The configuration of the site reminds one of an Roman villa and, indeed, there is an Roman road passing by.
In 1030 the name Pizay was mentioned for the first time in the charters of the Abbey of Cluny. In 1070, a surrounding wall was erected by the Lords of Pizay followed by a robust keep built in the 14th century.
A garden in the french style was added in the 18th century, completing the exquisite charm of the estate.
Since 1981 the estate is owned by the Societé Civile dExploitation du Château de Pizay, a subsidiary of the local funding agriculture insurance Groupama Rhône Alpes.
The Château includes a four-star hotel with 64 rooms and a gourmet restaurant. This is an ideal place to discover the charming pleasure of the Pays Beaujolais.
The estate covers 100 ha around the Château of which 50 ha are planted with grapevine. From a share-cropping in the neighborhood of Régnié-Durette comes the Régnié , 10th and last Cru of Beaujolais.
The purchase of the Château de Saint Lager in 1998, an estate of 8 ha situated on the famous hill of Brouilly, completes the range of refined wines with a fresh and pleasant Cru: the Brouilly Château de Saint Lager.
