The Côte-d'Or, a land of wine
The department of Côte-d’Or owes its name to the colour the vines planted on its hillsides take during fall. There are two main wine areas: the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. Between Dijon and the north of Beaune, the Côte de Nuits benefits from a semi-continental climate and a sandy limestone subsoil that is perfect to produce red wines, mainly made from Pinot noir. Further South, the Côte de Beaune enjoys a temperate climate subject to humid winds. Its soil, both deep and rocky, makes it possible to produce both red and white wines (Chardonnay).
