The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) competent committee declared the Burgundy wine region as well as the cellars of the Champagne region as World Heritage at a meeting taking place in Bonn.


Unesco decided that the vineyards, cellars and sales houses where champagne is produced and sold were culturally significant.

Several vineyards that grace Burgundy’s hillsides were crowned with the same distinction, joining a list of more than 1,000 sites across the world deemed to be “of outstanding value to humanity.”
