Burgundy

Burgundy is one of France's main wine producing areas, well known for both its red and white wines, mostly made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, although other grape varieties can be found including Gamay, Aligote, Pinot Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. The region is divided into the Côte-d'Or, where the most expensive and prized Burgundies are found, and Beaujolais, Chablis, the Côte Chalonnaise and Mâcon. Burgundy is a prosperous region and was a centre of medieval religious faith, producing unique Romanesque masterpieces at Vezelay, Fontenay and Cluny. The city of Dijon is filled with great palaces and is a must for lovers of art, architecture and food. Famous Burgundian dishes include coq au vin and beef bourguignon.
