About Chateau de Pizay
The Chateau de Pizay is one of the oldest and most famous estates of the Beaujolais region. Since the Middle Ages the fine wines of the Château de Pizay have been appreciated by Beaujolais-lovers across the world.

The oldest records date to 1030, when the name Pizay was mentioned for the first time in the charters of the Abbey of Cluny. In 1070, a surrounding wall was erected by the Lords of Pizay. The keep was built in the 14th Century and the classic formal gardens were added in the 18th Century.

While it is still the center of winemaking, the main Chateau is now a luxurious 4 star hotel, with an excellent restaurant. Visitors are able to visit the magnificent old cellars that have hosted many famous banquets. The Chateau and grounds are beautifully maintained including a sculpted topiary garden. A fantastic estate for wine, food and relaxation.
