This web series will take the form of a road trip along which wine lovers can explore Bourgogne with Marie and Alain, two youtubers who set off to find out more about the wine, the winemakers, and also the gastronomy and cultural heritage of each terroir.
This web series was created in response to a request from the Bourgogne AOC in order to promote those Bourgogne appellations plus an additional geographic denomination, such as Bourgogne Epineuil, Bourgogne Tonnerre, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Bourgogne Côte d’Or, and Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise (aka Bourgogne plus). It features winegrowers, but also other specialists, historians, geologists, and tour guides. Through these films, wine becomes a pretext for exploring the region’s riches and tourist attractions.
Who made Bourgogne Tonnerre wines famous throughout the courts of Europe during the 18th century? What is special about the village of Coulanges-la-Vineuse? Which trans-European pilgrimage passes through the plot of Bourgogne La Chapelle Notre-Dame? And which Duchess of Bourgogne acquired the terroir around Bourgogne Côtes du Couchois? Answers to all these questions and more can be found through the many interviews in this series of short films.
“Despite their many qualities and how long they’ve been around, our wines are still relatively little-known outside of their territories. We want to showcase their diversity and richness in a fun way, whilst inviting a new audience to come and explore our villages and estates,” says Bruno Verret, winegrower and President of the Syndicat des Bourgogne. “Tourism offers a wonderful opportunity to discover these appellations. Each one has its own history. Famous people have enjoyed them and sometimes promoted them across Europe. There are monuments that bear witness to this wine-themed past and to the industry they inspire,” he adds.
These videos are packed with fabulous images through which audiences can discover the vines, the historical monuments, waterways, and villages, in particular shot from the sky via drone.
