Wine Classified

This colorful map shows the several hundred geographically-defined wine-producing appellations of France. Based on the concept of terroir, France has one of the oldest systems for protected designation of origin for wine. Numerous laws passed in 1935 established the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, which defines and approves the grape varieties and winemaking practices for classification in each of the French wine-producing regions.
