The Beaujolais wine region is located in Eastern France, in the South of Burgundy. The Gamay grape is widely planted across Beaujolais and remains one of few regions to focus on a single grape. Small amounts of Pinot Noir are being grown but it is getting phased out by 2015 in the name of regional identity. Beaujolais has a continental climate heated from the Alps to the East, providing warm temperatures which make it ideal for ripening grapes. The region is known internationally for its long tradition of winemaking, uniquely emphasized the use of carbonic maceration, and more recently for the popular Beaujolais nouveau.
