New appellation signs will be popping up in the vines New appellation signs will be popping up in the vines

24 Sep, 2022

New signage to help visitors explore the patchwork of terroir that makes up Bourgogne Bourgogne has a network of around 330 signs to indicate its various appellations.

Discovering Bourgogne wines, 20th Century

28 Apr, 2021

In the aftermath of the 1914-18 war, families and assets were scattered. Wine sales were down and small-scale winegrowers were buying tiny plots of vines. Ownership came very much to the fore and many of today’s big wine estates were established in the years between 1920 and 1930. In 1919, the classification of the appellations became official, but it wasn’t until 1936 that the first AOCs were really born with Morey Saint-Denis leading the way. The aim was to confront the crisis by returning confidence to the consumer. In 1925, the Bourgogne winegrowers created the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin...

After the Revolution, the Bourgogne winegrowing region was dominated by families of wine merchants. It was they who bought the grapes from the winegrowers, who sold the wines and bottled them if they were not being delivered in barrels.

White Bourgognes did not become popular until some time later. This was the golden age of Bourgogne and exports were growing, with wines being dispatched as far as Russia and America. Napoleon insisted on nothing but Chambertin to...
