Burgundy is a region in eastern France that is famous for its wines as well as the two variety of grapes Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. To the ‘vigneron” (winemakers/growers) Burgundy is not only the original home of these grapes, but the “terroir” (tare-wah) that best expresses their character – elegant, aromatic, complex and highly enjoyable!
The vineyards are classified Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC), which is unique in France. The symbiosis of grapes, climate, soil, vineyard placement are highly important to have a good production of wine. The winemaking process, from tending and harvesting the grapes to vinification, are meticulously done to maintain their high quality that was practised from previous generations.
These vineyard landscapes are very well-defined in the region that you might want to visit. The mind-blowing scenery can be viewed either by foot, bicycle or by car. During summer, many activities are available; music and wine festival including even hot air balloon are fun and exciting.
