Who has never heard of Burgundy and its incredible wines.
We are located in Central-Eastern France, in a vast territory stretching from Auxerre to Lyon, an area of 250 km and almost 50,000 hectares of vineyards.
Vines were introduced two thousand years ago by the Romans, but it was the winegrowing monks between 500 and 1400 who gave the strongest impetus to local production. Although Burgundy, like the whole of Europe, went through a troubled 19th century because of phylloxera, it is universally recognised as one of the world's best wine regions.
There are many cult vineyards within this area, Pommard, Montrachet, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Vosne-Romanée and Aloxe-Corton; in Burgundy we also find that famous commune blessed by the God of (still) Chardonnay, Chablis.
The saying 'You know wine with Bordeaux but you fall in love with it with Burgundy' is, in our view, very apt.
