A vineyard perched above the village of Beaujeu, in the heart of Beaujolais and its old capital, is where Jean-Michel Dupré started from almost nothing: a farm and vineyard of only 2 hectares left by his father. When the question of succession arose, his attraction to the vine and wine was clear. So he converted old farm buildings into a winery and went in search of well-located plots in Beaujolais, Beaujolais Villages, Morgon, and Régnié. All of these years later he is still hard at work thanks to the passion for a job well done.
