The Briante castle and its wineries

Château de Briante is located in Saint-Lager, Beaujolaisone hour by car from Lyon.

The Faupin family have owned the estate since 2011 and are committed to protecting the heritage and quality of their 100% Gamay wines, albeit with a long history of wine-making, originally in Beaune in Burgundy! Here they produce Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly and Moulin à Vent red Beaujolais crus and the less common white Beaujolais (Beaujolais Blanc) which is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Often drunk young to get the best of Beaujolais (typically light and fruity from the Gamay grape), some of the better Crus can be aged for 5 years or more when they are made with skill and care. Domaine de Briante is one such producer.Wine tastings can be arranged for guests on site.
