New World regions use technology and winemaking tricks to create easy-drinking, light red wines, but for centuries the Beaujolais region has been doing it â€˜naturallyâ€™. Thanks to their beloved, fruity Gamay grape, and a moderate climate. â€˜Lightly chill the Beaujolais, and let the party beginâ€™, has always worked for me. Beaujolais is also great for the first hour of the evening, and weekend lunches. At this price, Iâ€™m grabbing a little stock for summer picnics, parties, etc.
