Gamay Wines (Beaujolais)
If you’re one of the few who actually stops to smell the neighbor’s flowers, or breathes in deeply when you’re in a forested area then you are the ideal drinking candidate for Gamay.
Gamay (“Gam-may” aka Gamay Noir) is a light-bodied red wine that’s similar in taste to Pinot Noir. In fact, this variety is a cousin of Pinot Noir and it grows primarily next to Burgundy, France (Pinot motherland) in a region called Beaujolais. Gamay wines are loved for their delicate floral aromas, subtle earthy notes, and surprising ability to pair with food (even fish!). The best part is, you can find high quality Gamay at a much better price than Pinot Noir.
