UKV PLC recommends that beginners familiarize themselves with a few notable regions: Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, and Loire.


The Burgundy region of France has a strong reputation for producing both red and white wines. Pinot Noir grapes produce earthy Burgundy reds, while Chardonnay grapes produce fruity Burgundy whites. Burgundy wines can fetch quite high prices, especially the unique Côte de Beaune Chardonnay.


Due to its location on the Atlantic coast, Bordeaux traditionally ships its medium-bodied red wines to different countries. Most Bordeaux wines are a combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, or Merlot grapes. Prices vary greatly in this region.


Not all sparkling wines are correctly considered Champagne. Champagne wine must come from the Champagne region of northeastern France. Winemakers in this area often use a traditional double-fermentation process, due to the cold climate.


The Loire region of France spreads across 87 islands along the Loire River. These appellations produce a truly varied spectrum of wines, from Muscadet (a light white wine) to Sauvignon blanc.
