Why is Burgundy different from Oregon and Sonoma for Pinot Noir?

Beginner
Grape vines in Burgundy see far less sunshine than their counterparts in Oregon and Sonoma simply because of how far north they sit. Winemaker Alex Gambal explains the differences in the angle of the sunlight and the amount of sunlight that each region receives over the course of the summer. In many ways, this is a cheat sheet to understanding the broad stroke differences between the Pinot Noir’s main growing regions. Filmed on location at Flickinger Wines in Chicago.
