The vineyards of Beaujolais fall on the granite rich slopes of a hilly region between Mâcon and Lyon at the southern limit of Burgundy. The only vine variety authorised for red wines is Gamay, traditionally grown as free standing bush vines. A small amount of Chardonnay is also grown. The most favourable vineyard sites produce `villages` wines, and the 10 named `Cru` villages of Beaujolais represent the best vineyards of the region and produce the longest-lived and fullest style of Beaujolais.
Owned by the very talented winemaker Jean-Paul Dubost and produced from a collection of vineyards inherited from other family members. These richly concentrated `Cru` Beaujolais of Domaine Dubost reflect the distinct vineyard character and potential of Beaujolais.

The Morgon from `la Ballofiere` comes from bush vines grown on granite soils, whilst the Fleurie is on lighter soils. His wines are listed on most of the top gastronomic restaurants in Burgundy.
