Burgundy (French, Bourgogne)  is an inland region of east-central France southeast of Paris. Noted for its rich history, Burgundy is probably most famous for the wines of the same name, as well as several other important varieties.
Burgundy has a rich architectural inheritance of remarkable buildings, castles, and Roman churches. Its vineyards are some of the most prestigious in the world, and its cuisine is also famous.
Burgundy also offers natural beauty, with lakes and forests, and plenty of opportunities for fishing, walking or riding. The Nièvre holds a vast area of wild countryside ideal both for sport and cultural activities. The visitor will find lands with different tastes to discover, and gentle landscapes with the river Loire and hillsides covered with vineyards.
Wine is unmistakably the most well known product in Burgundy. From north to south, the most famous and recognizable wines of the region grow on carefully exposed soils: Chablis, Côteaux de l'Auxerrois, Côte-de-Nuits, Côte-de-Beaune, Hautes-Côtes, Côtes Chalonnaise et Mâconnais, and, of course, Pouilly-sur-Loire.
As far as English is concerned, it is quite likely that tourists will be able to find English speakers in tourist areas, namely just the city of Dijon. As soon as you venture into less populated areas, knowledge of French becomes essential.
