The most famous wines produced in the Burgundy Region are dry red wines made from the finest Pinot Noir grapes and top quality white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Burgundy has a higher number of appellations d'origine contrôlée (AOCs) than any other French region, and is often seen as the most terroir-conscious of the French wine regions. The various Burgundy AOCs are classified from carefully delineated grand cru vineyards down to more non-specific regional appellations. The practice of delineating vineyards by their terroir in Burgundy goes back to medieval times, when various monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry. At House of Townend we have a brilliantly wide portfolio of wines from Burgundy that includes wines from Chablis, Côte de Beaune and Mâconnais. We carry wines from all classifications including both 1er cru and grand cru wines from some of the best and most prestigious domains in Burgundy.
