Gamay 2020

The International Gamay Competition

Centre de Congrès de Lyon

The 10th edition of the International Gamay Competition will take place on the 11th January 2020 at the Cité Internationale Congress Centre in Lyon. A grand jury will once again this year re-taste all the wines which have obtained a gold medal to determine which is the World’s Best Gamay 2020. The winner will be presented with the Trophy at the awards ceremony. It will be the successor to the Domaine Franck Chavy Morgon 2017 cuvée Fût de Chêne which won the Trophy in 2019.

Gamay represents around 30 000 ha in the world today. If its terroir of predilection remains the hillsides of Beaujolais where 14 180 ha are cultivated, it is also to be found in numerous other vine growing regions of France (the South West, the Val de Loire, Rhône-Alpes…) and in other countries (Switzerland, Italy, Central Europe, China, America, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand…).
