  1. Hey Emil,

    I think the discussion about French wine regions is an interesting one, if for no other reason than the break up of where grapes are grown. For a Pinot lover, I’d guess Burgundy would be more important than Bordeaux even though the Bordeaux varietals are more well known internationally.

      Hi Mark,

      Burgundy is a great home for Pinot Noir wines (I’m guessing you’re thinking of the reds, and not the whites of Pinot Grigio/Gris which are more common in Alsace). I must admit that in general Pinot Noir wines are more my favorites as well. I agree that it’s interesting looking at the grapes for French wines, as well as a few other countries were you usually only find the region on the label instead of the varietal – I’ve even had people come up to me talking about Bordeaux and Burgundy as if it were grapes. Hopefully my writing can help at least someone understand the difference.

      We actually have 656 wineries and vineyards at WineTravelr at the moment, if you’re just looking for where to go. There are a few others who have US wineries/vineyards listed, so if you tell why you need it, I’d love to help
