Cultural vineyards in Burgundy

Just before Christmas we wrote about the applications of Burgundy and Champagne to be the French candidate for the 2012 UNESCO world cultural heritage. The happy winner was announced a few weeks ago and it was Burgundy.

Together with the other winner, La Grotte orné Chauvet-Pont d’Arc, with cave paintings that are 35 000 years old, the Côte d’Or of Burgundy, Les Climats de Bourgogne, will be presented to the UNESCO committee later this year.
