Chateau de Pizay
Since the Middle Ages the fine wines of the Château de Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers. Noble descendants of the aristocracy of selected Crus and vinified with every respect given to tradition, these wines are tasted all over the world. The layout of the site reminds one of a Roman villa and, indeed, there is an Roman road passing by. In 1030 the name Pizay was mentioned for the first time in the charters of the Abbey de Cluny. In 1070, a surrounding wall was erected by the Lords of Pizay followed by a robust keep built in the 14th century. A garden in the french style was added in the 18th century, completing the exquisite charm of the estate.
The Château includes a four-star hotel with 64 rooms and a gourmet restaurant. This is an ideal place to discover the charming pleasure of the Pays Beaujolais.
