Burgundian Stonework: Murgers, Clos and Cabottes

By

Santenay

These are lovely vineyards in Santenay. Murgers are walls made up of piled up stones cleared from rocky vineyards before they could be planted.

Murgers

Clos are walled vineyards. One here even has steps built into the wall.

Clos

Cabottes are vineyard huts to store tools in or have one’s sandwiches when its wet. This one is built into a Clos.
