I live in Burgundy, though it isn’t my primary professional focus, and I’m certainly not an expert on it; so I live here and drink a lot of it but I don’t study it.  Except, of course, that viticulture here has almost 2,000 years of history (a vineyard in Gevrey Chambertin has been found to have existed in the Roman period).  And this history is bound up with religion and identity, terroir and conflict – which makes it fundamental to how we view some aspects of the culture of wine.  So this part of my blog is a series of occasional comments on the place where I live.
