The national Vignobles & Découvertes label was created in 2009 to establish a network among stakeholders in the wine tourism sector in the same region. Visitors can thereby easily identify all the activities on offer along wine routes. This label is attributed by the Ministries of Tourism and Agriculture for a three-year period. Today, six destinations are currently included in the scheme, three of which have already been renewed**, bringing together 600 label-bearing activities, including 155 wineries.

In chronological order of receiving the label:
Beaune: From Corton to Montrachet**
Dijon Côte de Nuits**
Chablis wine region**
Auxerrois wine region
Mâconnais wine region
Côte Chalonnaise

The Châtillonnais wine region is also taking the necessary steps to acquire the label in 2016.
