Wine[edit]

Morey-Saint-Denis is situated in the Northern section of the Côte d'Or called Côte de Nuits. It is one of the principal wine producing villages of the region.

Within Morey-Saint-Denis there are five Grand Cru appellations and 20 Premier Cru vineyards. The Bonnes Mares appellation straddles the border between Morey-Saint-Denis and Chambolle-Musigny and therefore can be produced in either commune [1].
