History

A legend throughout the entire Côte-d’Or, Henri de Villamont can be easily spotted from miles around due to its famous “Guettes Tower” and beautiful manor house, which has drawn wine lovers on aBurgundy pilgrimage for many decades. Located in the heart of one of the region’s prettiest villages, Savigny les Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a magical place, surrounded by high walls and scores of Premier Cru vineyards.

The Wine

Brouilly is the southernmost of Beaujolais’ cru vineyards. Beaujolais is a large wine producing region, larger than any single district of Burgundy. There are over 18,000 hectares of vines planted in a 34 miles stretch of land that is between 7 and 9 miles wide. Many of Beaujolais vineyards are found in the hillside on the outskirt of Lyons in the eastern portion of the region along the Saône valley. The Massif Central is located to the west and has a tempering influence on Beaujolais’ climate. The region is located south of the Burgundy wine region Mâconnais with nearly 100 communes in the northern region of Beaujolais overlapping between the AOC boundaries Beaujolais and the Maconnais region of Saint-Véran.
