Agamy, the art of Gamay

Agamy – or the art of Gamay – brings together Les Vignerons Foréziens (Loire) and Cave des Coteaux du Lyonnais (Rhône), as well as Cave de Signé Vignerons in the Beaujolais area (Rhône), the latter of which represents a merger between the Bully and Quincié-en-Beaujolais cooperative wineries in 2010. The name of the three cellars’ commercial structure, Union Signé Vignerons, was replaced in January 2015 by Agamy, which has a new logo and the following slogan, “your vision of wine is going to change”. This company is the leading producer of AOP wines in the Beaujolais region.

The Wines

These two wines are part of our Haute Couture range. They reveal Gamay’s exceptional character. Assisted by a dozen growers, we have selected parcels from our hillside vineyards, managed according to specific requirements.
The grapes are hand-picked when fully ripened, thereby allowing us to increase the crisp and fresh character of our wines made from Gamay. The Decanter World Wine Awards (May 2015) have attributed a gold medal to Les Combes and a silver medal to Memoria.
Memoria means memory in Latin, to pay tribute to the cellar winemakers founders.
