Learning With EWGA Wines - Burgundy

This week we invite you to learn about the renowned wines of Burgundy, arguably the worlds best chardonnay and pinot noir producing region. 

 

Located in the east-central part of France, Burgundy consists of around 27,700 hectares of vineyards divided between five wine-growing regions. This prestigious wine region produces around 150 million litres of wine each year - just 3% of the total production of wine in France

 

Similarly to most famous French wine regions, the history of winemaking in Burgundy dates back to the Romans.

 

It can take many years to learn about the intricacies of Burgundy wine, from its appellations and stylistic nuances to the precise location of its patchwork quilt of climates. However, today's course brought to you by Burgundy’s regional wine board, the BIVB, will teach you all you should know in just 90 minutes.
