Here abbeys of Saint Michel and Quincy produce wines whose reputation goes back to the Middle Age. For a long time the area supplied Paris with wine; the vineyards have almost been destroyed by phylloxera, but have made a come back since the 1970\'s, around Epineuil. The work of the wine growers has been successfully acknowledged: the appellation Bourgogne Epineuil has been granted since 1993. The area is hilly and the vines benefit from the richness of the Kimmeridgian soil and from a micro climate. The area produces red, white and rosé wines. The red wines, issued from Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are light with red fruits and pepper aromas. They are recommended with cooked vegetables topped with cheeses, veal, roasted poultry and cheeses like Chaource and Gouda.
