The wine region of Burgundy is located in central-eastern France. It goes from Auxerre to Macon and represents 27,200 ha of vines, or 3% of the national AOC vineyard. Divided into five subregions (Mâconnais, Côte de Nuits, Chablis, Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune), this vineyard has several climates: continental (north), ocean (east) and Mediterranean (south). The Burgundy region has several varieties, based on clay and limestone soils: pinot noir, chardonnay, gamay, pinot gray, burgundy melon, caesar, sacy, cabernet and white grape. Burgundy is divided into several fields. For example, appellation Romanée has only 0.8 hectares of vines. This is why winemakers invented "climates".

Each year, 200 million bottles come from the Burgundy region. The two of them are exported abroad. Burgundy wines are among the most famous and known worldwide.
