UNESCO recognizes Burgundy and Champagne Regions

Wine lovers have believed in the greatness of Burgundy’s soil for centuries, but it wasn’t until this year for its official recognition. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recognized the region’s 2,000-year history and cultural heritage by adding the climates of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune to its list of World Heritage sites.

UNESCO also recognized Champagne too, voting to add the region’s hillside vineyards, houses and cellars to its list, also in the “Living Cultural Landscapes” category.
