En route to
Included on the World Heritage list by UNESCO since
4th July 2015, the Climats, vineyards of Burgundy, form a
unique cultural site. For 2,000 years, men have cultivated
vines here, guided by a desire to link ever more precisely
the wine with the place where it is produced, identifying
it by its origin. This has given rise to an exceptional
mosaic of over 1,000 Climats, making Burgundy the
very model of terroir-based viticulture. This specific
cultivation of the vine in small parcels has also led to the
progressive emergence of a heritage that is diverse and
unique: the stone walls and cabottes (stone shelters) in
the vineyards, the wine producer’s homes in the villages,
but also the monuments in the cities of Dijon and Beaune.
It is an architectural heritage that provides evidence of
the major influence of the monks, the Valois Dukes of
Burgundy, the wine merchants and the wine-growers…
who forged, promoted and preserved the Climats through
the centuries. This is the heritage that we invite you to
explore. It is a heritage that now belongs to all mankind.
Discover the grandiose nature of the Climats! 55 miles of
trails snake between the Marcs-d’Or (just south of Dijon) and
Santenay, passing in front of vineyards producing Grands
Crus wines, cabottes (stone shelters), churches, wash houses,
villages and some exceptional views…

walls and cabottes (stone shelters), and
building wineries and wine-growers’ houses,
wine caves and cellars, churches and hospices,
palaces and castles. Set off to explore them all.

[Article 1, paragraph 3 of the Convention of World Heritage]
What is a "Climat" in Burgundy?
There is a Burgundy specific definition of the word
“Climat”. In Burgundy, a Climat refers to the wine-growing
terroir. The Climats are vineyard plots whose limits have
been precisely drawn out, and who have been named and
identified by men for several centuries. Each Climat has its own personality, culturally, reflecting
its millennia old history, and naturally, through its
very specific soil and sub-soil, its exposition and
microclimate… Here, every wine from a Climat boasts
a unique flavour, brought forth through the use of one
sole grape variety (Pinot noir for red wines, Chardonnay
for white wines), and earns its place in the hierarchy of
the Crus. More than 1,247 Climats are lined up within the
boundaries of the area listed as World Heritage, from
Dijon to the Maranges. There are a total of over 1,500 in
Burgundy as a whole.
“Balades en Bourgogne”:
a collection of trails!
4 different trails:
> around the famous Château du Clos de
Vougeot (about 4.4 miles)
> the Cliffs Trail in Santenay (just under 7 miles)

Unique and fragile, the Climats, vineyards of Burgundy,
are our heritage, one that must be protected and passed
on. Their inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List
as a "cultural landscape" is part of this objective. This is
a commitment that has been undertaken, and witnessed
by the community of nations, to respect and to preserve
the "Outstanding Universal Value" of the Climats, as
"combined works of nature and man".

The wine cellar of Clairvaux
The villages are at the heart of wine production.
They include some remarkable elements of
local heritage: wine-grower’s houses, with wine
production dependences, as well as numerous
wine cellars, wineries and wine presses, some of
which date back to the Middle Ages. The best way to
discover these sites is to stroll through their ancient
streets and push open the doors to the wine cellars…

The Château du Clos de Vougeot,
a standing memory of the Cistercian monks
Clos de Vougeot is the emblematic Burgundian
“Clos”. Starting in the 12th century, monks of the
neighbouring abbey of Cîteaux built a vast wineproducing operation, including a cellar and a winery
which still houses two monumental wine presses.
The Château also hosts the famous "Chapters"
(“Chapitres”) organised by the Confrérie des Chevaliers
du Tastevin (a brotherhood whose mission is to
promote Burgundian wine production).
