Though the Romans first cultivated vines in Burgundy during the first century, some might say that the history of Burgundy's winemaking began some 200 million years ago. At this time, the region was part of a vast, tropical ocean. Over the course of several million years, pressure from this ancient sea compressed organic material on the ocean floor to form the region's celebrated limestone soils. It is this legendary terroir that endows Burgundy wines with the zesty minerality that has become the hallmark of the region. While small in size, this land-locked enclave has made a large impact on the world of wine and Misa Imports is proud to offer a curated Burgundy portfolio that highlights some of its best wines in terms of value and taste.
