Description

Chateau des Reyssiers is situated in the Regnie appellation at the bottom of the Brouilly hill. It is located near Beaujeu, the historic capital of Beaujolais. The combination of the bedrock, slope, exposure and quality of the soil have created a promising terroir. Construction of the Chateau des Reyssiers dates from the year 1706. Its current architecture still retains the main part of its original character. This Chateau has a long history over several generations of the "Malachard" family. In 300 years, as far as we can trace, the Chateau has always produced wine.
