Beaujolais is the true home base of Camry, and 98% of the Beaujolais vineyards follow the long-established traditional methods of planting and planting high-quality Camry grapes.
In July 1395, Philippethe Bold, the Grand Duke of the Principality of Burgundy, declared that the cultivation of Camry grapes was illegal. Sixty years later, his grandson Philippe the Good issued another decree prohibiting the cultivation of Camry grapes. The reason for this was “Burgundy.” Dagong is the godfather of wine in the Christian world, and we must maintain our reputation.” The direct effect of this decree is to promote the cultivation of Camry grapes to the south of France, away from the main production areas of Burgundy, and finally rooted in the Beaujolais region, which is highly suitable for the growth of Camry grapes and full of granite geology, and Straight to flourish today.
