Unknown or unloved grape varieties: jamais Gamay!

Château Rochefort
FULL
--
Because there is more to life than Chasselas, and because our region boasts a wide range of grape varieties and talented winemakers, Lausanne à Table is holding an evening focusing on little-known or little-loved grape varieties.
It is not uncommon to hear the cry of "Jamais Gamay!" (Never Gamay!) at the sight of this grape variety. It is labelled as a bland or industrial grape variety. However, this typical Beaujolais grape variety has many assets and this is what 6 Vaudois and organic winemakers will show you with their Gamay.

In the magnificent setting of Château Rochefort, take advantage of the sunny terrace to taste these 6 gamays served and presented by the winemakers themselves. All accompanied by a nice aperitif board made of local products.

An event supported by the Office des Vins Vaudois, open to people who have already been won over by Gamay, or to those who wish to thwart their preconceived ideas and share these tastings with passionate winemakers!
