for this region?


Volnay is an appellation created in 1937,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for red wines  from the commune of that name on the Cote de Beaune section of Burgundy’s Cote d’Or. Though it does not have any Grands Crus, it does have 29 Premiers Crus plus 5 Premier Cru vineyards in neighbouring Meursault known as the Santenots and totaling about 30 hectares use the Volnay appellation for red wines. Interestingly, Volnay is located next to Pommard, but it wines’ typically light, elegant style is the opposite of its neighbor’s rich, powerful ones.
