Terroir

Cru Régnié

On December 20, 1988, Régnié wines officially left the family of the Beaujolais-Villages to become the 10th Beaujolais Cru (Cru is the French term for growth or vintage that constitutes the highest ranking wines of the area) - a legitimate recognition of this terroir situated between the Brouilly Cru to the southwest and the Morgon Cru to the east.
The Regnié vineyards are located at an altitude ranging from 200 to 450 metres, with an east/southeast exposure. To the north, the vineyards are protected by a 'coomb' called the Avenas.
The soil is essentially composed of manganese-rich pink granite. The soil is shallow, light and rich in mineral elements.

Château des Vergers

The 33 acres of vineyards of the Château des Vergers are located on the southeastern portion of the Régnié appellation controlé secteur. Most of the vines are at 'Crest d'œillat,' immediately adjacent to the Morgon cru.
