Rully is a village with a long history. It boasts a château which has been in the same family for six centuries, a church with an elegant bell-tower, as well as fine houses and parks. The abbey of Saint-Bénigne in Dijon, the powerful Maison de Vergy, and the Dukes of Burgundy have all played their part in the history of these vineyards in the Côte Chalonnaise. Rully was granted its AOC in 1939 and now produces red wines (PinotNoir) and white wines (Chardonnay) with both village and Premier Cru appellations. Since the early 19th century it has been, in addition, an important centre for the making of CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE.
