The appellation of Saint Amour was born on 8 February 1946, though the communes history stretches back to a Roman warrior, Saint Amateur, founder of a monastery installed on the stud overlooking the valley of the Saône. At the extreme northern limit, Saint Amour is the terminal of the route des crus (the ten cru villages of Beaujolais).

The wine is bright with a ruby glow in the glass. The aromas are voluptuous scents of flowers and fruit. The body is tender and harmonious. It is, of course, the perfect bottle to open on 14th February to celebrate St Valentine's Day.

This makes a delicious aperitif when served slighlty chilled, or pair with vegetables, grilled white meats, or fish.

Gamay

Gamay is a thin, delicate purple-black skinned grape which is cylindrical and compact, surrounded by flat, fairly even-edged leaves.

Although granite soils seem to be its soil of choice, the variety is good at adapting. Half of the 30,000 hectares of Gamay planted worldwide are in the Beaujolais region of France, where it covers 98% of the areas that produce Beaujolais wine.

Beaujolais, France

The hilly Beaujolais vineyards stretch out from north to south over 55km, bordered to the west by the Massif Central, and to the east by the Saone river.

Beaujolais vineyards are emblematic in the French national landscape, but are still teeming with secrets to be unearthed. The region has a constent sense of welcome and sharing. Sculpted over centuries it is personified by its 12 AOCs.
