Burgundy: 1000 Years of Heritage

Burgundy produces only 0.5% of the world’s wines, but what wines they are! Burgundy represents the essence of terroir, the notion that wine will have a specific taste based on location, grape variety, soil composition, exposure, climate and human savoir-faire. We can’t make a complex region simple, but we can give you one great piece of information for understanding Burgundy: all whites are made from Chardonnay; all reds are made from Pinot Noir.

How to Earn:

Taste 5 different wines from each of the five appellations: Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais.
