Found 6062
In the Middle Ages, the Duchy of Burgundy was an independent and prosperous state. Extensive vineyards were formed around the castle, which, after the French Revolution, were sold not as a whole, but in sections. Therefore, in the Burgundy wine is not made in chateau, as in Bordeaux, but in the domain (from the domain — “land”). In Burgundy, there is a huge number of small wine producers, and variety of wines is as huge. Noteworthy is the fact that there are not that many grapes varieties there.
