Summary

Summary

The text and the photographs go together to celebrate the French countryside of Burgundy. It shows the early influences on the area, through the flourishing of the Catholic Church and later the Benedictine order of Cluny. The monks enthusiasm, work ethic, lifestyle and philosophy led to the cultivation of the poor, infertile land of Cote d'Or. The book provides a history and detailed view of the climate, the land, the wine and the culture of this area.
