for this region?


Volnay is a red wine-producing village in the Cote de Beaune section of Burgundy’s Cote d’Or. Though it does not have any Grands Crus, it does have a number of Premiers Crus. Interestingly, it is located next to Pommard, but it wines’ typically light, elegant style is the opposite of its neighbor’s rich, powerful ones.
