La route des vins et l’émergence d’un tourisme viticole en Bourgogne dans l’entre-deux-guerres

Abstract : At the end of the nineteenth century, tour guides totally excluded vineyard visits and gastronomic activities from their Burgundy sightseeing tours. Only natural sites and medieval monuments were of interest to visiting travelers. Gourmet products and wines were perceived at the time as being internationally recognized high-end upper-class luxury products, so not associated with any particular region. The trading weight of certain wines and the winemaking freedom enjoyed by vintners (freedom to produce blended wines from grapes of different geographical origins) were major factors contributing to this situation. Towards the late 1930s, major changes occurred in production and marketing standards in France, with the introduction of appellations of origin, together with a cultural renaissance based on regional traditions, along with a strong drive on the part of the Republic’s political establishment to promote local “homeland” areas
