Winemaker notes

Developed in Switzerland in 1970, Gamaret is a crossing of Gamay and Reichensteiner, a German white grape. It shares similar traits to Gamay, but with deeper color and greater structure. It was only authorized for planting in Beaujolais in 2008. Less than 1000 acres of vines are planted globally, mostly in Switzerland.
