The undisputed 'King of Beaujolais' is Georges Duboeuf, who started by roaming the region in his VW back in the sixties, making wine wherever he stopped. Today his company now produces upwards of 3 million cases a year, making him one of France's largest and best-known wine merchants. An innovator in the way Beaujolais was made, he also took the concept of Beaujolais Nouveau to new heights. It is now one of the wine world's most famous events and accounts for 1/5th of his annual production (approximately 4 million bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau alone). It centres around the concept of being the first wine of the vintage, with much fanfare made of the wine's release on the third Thursday in November.
