Burgundy region, France

Burgundy, France

Think of it as Bordeaux’s more-laid cousin. Named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2015, the Burgundy region of France has been producing wine since the Middle Ages. Known for its terroir and the area’s climat system, Burgundy produces several notable wine varietals like Pinot Noir, Chablis and Beaujolais.

 The World Heritage area consists of two parts: the vineyards and production areas including several villages, the town of Beaune and the historic center of Dijon. Though a visit here is clearly centered on the wine, there are also historic chateaux, cycling routes that meander along the canals and through vineyards and a world-class dining scene. It’s the perfect blend for an unforgettable vacation.
