The Wine Region of Burgundy
Select a guide from the list below.
Considered by many to be the heartland of French wine, the gentle countryside of Burgundy is a joy to visit. The vineyards are home to two of the world's most treasured grape varieties - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and in the southern Beaujolais area, we find the quintessential, refreshing Gamay. Many of the cellars in the northern areas of Burgundy define the image of a quiet, mysterious place full of ageing wine in barrels. Moving further south, the bucolic picture of French wine asserts itself in the rolling landscape of Mâconnais and Beaujolais.
Everywhere here, it's the people who farm, make and market the wines who matter, and we have in-depth Guides from our local specialist writers on six micro-regions that will introduce you to some of the local stars.
