Paul SPAY, the Mayor of Saint Amour, is one of the most important producers.

The main part of the familial estate, spread over 13 hectares, circles the old village of Saint Amour.

Saint Amour, the wine that has a charming name, is the northern cru of the Beaujolais.

This small appellation is spread over 280 hectares and grows on calcareous soil. The latter gives the wine a mineral taste that goes well with the Gamay.
