Where in the wine world are we? Border edition

Where in the wine world was this picture taken? If you’ve found this hard in previous editions, now you have a greater chance since there are two right answers!

According to the photographer, the small road down the middle of the vineyard is actually the line between two significant wine regions. So where is this border zone? Hit the comments with your thoughts! No prizes this time, just glory!

UPDATE: Check here for the answer.

  1. I’d have to guess the border of Mâconnais and Beaujolais…

  2. Maybe Austria and Hungary?

  3. Pfalz and Alsace

  4. Châteauneuf du Pape and Cotes du Rhone?

  5. Trick question: they’re both Beaujolais

  6. I second the vote for beaujolais and the maconnais, near puilly fuisse.

  7. Great guesses! Congrats to Viinipiru and Michael who nailed it. I’ve updated the post with a photo credit and commentary from the photographer, Bertrand Celce.

  8. There are a few things of interest here after reading the update:
    1. Please, though I may have temporary exile in Kansas, just leave that off when posting from me, or say, Michael, in exile… lol, anyway…
    2. the commentary on this picture just makes me think how sad it is that the beaujolais region can’t get its act together, though I think with all of the burgundy money buying-in these days it should see some improvement.

  9. […] to Viinipiru from Finland and Michael temporarily from Kansas who both nailed the answer in this mystery photo! Dylan also got half credit! The answer is that region one is Beaujolais and region two is […]

  10. Hey all – I thought this was too interesting to keep here in an “update” as I had originally done so I gave the reveal its whole own posting!

    Michael – I changed your affiliation in the post! Your second point made me want to break out this info since it is much more interesting visually once you know the backstory.
