Travel Photo of the Day: Burgundy Vines, France

The Côte de Beaune is located in the Burgundy region of France
This wine-producing sub-region is located 27 miles south of Dijon, the capital of Burgundy.

Out of France’s prominent wine-producing regions, Burgundy is relatively small, with only a planted vineyard area that "is about a fourth the size of Bordeaux’s." As with many things, though, quantity hardly correlates with quality when it comes to evaluating wines. Burgundy wines have a long history of being some of the world’s most acclaimed wines.

The region is split up into five main regions that include (from north to south) Chablis, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, and Mâconnais. Pictured above is the Côte de Beaune sub-region that stretches south of Beaune, the small town Burgundian wine capital. Although the Côte de Beaune produces both reds (largely the pinot noir varietal) and whites (overwhelmingly chardonnay), it’s known for the latter, which include mythic bottles like Meursault, Montrachet (and related bottles), Chassagne, and Puligny.
