Gold Seal Champagne For the Thanksgiving Dinner. 1912. [1]

Gold Seal Champagne For the Thanksgiving Dinner. 1912. [1]

The wine in art series of posts at Licores Reyes, a Spanish wine and spirits company, is a notable addition this month.  Each of these posts presents an history of a painting, thoughtful analysis, and close-up images.  On this blog I would like to point out the Burgundy Classification Map of 1861.  This important map should also be viewed alongside the Saar and Mosel Map, 1868 that Lars Carlberg has detailed on his site.  I should note that both of these maps use three colors.  Please help support and encourage research into the History of Wine by sharing this post and contributing links from around the world. Until the end of December you may find more history of wine at:
