Fun Facts

Burgundy was once a tropical sea

200 million years ago Burgundy was under water. This vast tropical sea greatly contributed to the local terroir with a range of fertile sediments made of fossils and minerals that are now part of the limestone and marl soils of the region. Today, you can find fossilized sea creatures in the vineyards and taste the minerality in the famous Burgundy wines.

Winemaking in Burgundy dates back to the Roman Empire

The Romans invaded Gaul in 52 BC and brought their knowledge of vine growing and winemaking with them. Many vines were planted in the region, and by the 2nd century AD, wine was an important part of the local culture and trade. Written records of the wine of Burgundy date back to the 4th century.

A world famous region with a small production

Burgundy produces a rather small amount of wine, approximately 3% of the overall French wine production, but they are some of the best and most expensive wines in the world. The region embodies quality over quantity.

Viticulture in Burgundy is closely linked to the Benedictine monks

The Cistercian and Cluniac Orders played a key role in the development of vine growing and wine making. They improved quality, learned to control yields, researched growing techniques, and documented their work. The concepts of terroir and climats originated from their attempt to classify their plots, and the clos were built by the monks to protect the vines from the animals.
