Between the Côte de Beaune in the north and the Mâconnais mountains in the south, the Côte Chalonnaise extends over 25 km long and 7 km wide vineyards. The vines have been growing here for a thousand years in a soil type comparable to that of the nearby Côte de Beaune. The summers are hot and the autumn dry, so the grapes ripen easily.

A little further west, on the other side of the Canal du Center, is the Couchois. Six wine-growing municipalities produce distinctive wines, the quality of which has been recognized since 2000 by the “Appellation d’Origine Contrôllée (AOC) Bourgogne Côte du Couchois”.
