What’s Up Burgundy

The total production of Burgundy is predominantly white wine, which is a shocker as its the birthplace of pinot noir.
Burgundy gave away, as samples, over 5 million bottles of wine, a total of about 3% of the total sold in 2011 (Where’s my bottle!).
Despite how small the region of Burgundy is, wine production really is still bigger than Napa Valley.
