Burgundy is famous for its impressive wines and cuisine as well as for the rich architecture of its buildings, castles, and churches. The region also offers areas of natural beauty with many lakes and forests with good fishing, walking and horseback riding. Wine is the best-known product from the Burgundy region. The gentle landscapes near to the river Loire are close to hillsides covered with vineyards. From north to south, the best wines grow at Chablis, Côteaux de l'Auxerrois, Côte-de-Nuits, Côte-de-Beaune, Hautes-Côtes, Côtes Chalonnaise et Mâconnais, and Pouilly-sur-Loire.
