French wine is the ultimate example of quality production, which has inspired many countries worldwide. The grapes that are used and exported all over the world, such as Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet, Pinot and Sauvignon, the combination of territorial characteristics referred to as territoire, and the age-old winemaking tradition are the secrets of its success. The French, in addition to producing simple, inexpensive and highly drinkable wines, boast some of the world's most famous expressions, from the great reds of Bordeaux and Burgundy to botrytized wines such as Sauternes, and from the white wines of the Loire Valley to the famous and luxurious Champagne. These are highly sought-after and prestigious wines, which offer unforgettably unique emotions.

The Wines of France

France is one of the most important centres of wine today, boasting important records related to the production of wines. It excels not only in terms of quantity and quality but also in the enhancement of typicality, in agronomic and enological innovation, and in the development of pioneering concepts ranging from that of the cru, which applies to vineyards, villages and the most suitable soils, to that of the terroir, which defines the overall physical, climatic and cultural characteristics of a given production area.

Words such as Champagne, Sancerre, Sauternes, Bordeaux, Chablis, Corton, Montrachet, Chateauneuf du Pape and many others have become legendary for wine lovers all over the world. They evoke great emotions, magnificent memories, priceless experiences and unforgettable sensations. And then there are also the grape varieties whose names have remained inseparably linked to their pronunciation throughout the world, such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The classification of wines in France is based on qualitative distinctions that can be summarised in a pyramidal structure. At the top are the types with the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC), which is equivalent to the Italian DOC and DOCG. These include Bordeaux, where the traditional Bordeaux blend was born and where aristocratic red French wines are produced; Burgundy, where prestigious reds and whites are made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes; Champagne, which is the world's sparkling wine capital; Alsace, which is famous for its white wines that are renowned throughout the world for their unmistakable flavour; the Loire, where Sauvignon is produced; the Languedoc, which is now undergoing a vibrant wine-growing renaissance based on quality and finally, Provence and the Rhône Valley, where rich and generous wines are produced.

From its 26 centuries of winemaking history, this nation has developed an extraordinary winemaking culture, from which great red, white, passito and fortified wines are born and continue to emerge, becoming indisputable points of reference throughout the world.


The History and Enological Culture of the Territory

The history of French wine is one of the oldest in the world. The first evidence of vines comes from the Greeks, who were probably the ones to spread it in the territory, when they founded Massalia, which is present-day Marseille, in 600 BC. Although the vine was already present in Europe, it was only with the arrival of the Romans that viticulture and the
