Currently, France has over 40,000 wineries and 800,000 hectares of vineyards for wine breweries and production, making it the second largest country globally in the vineyard area, followed by China.
The designations system of origin of agricultural products started in the country with the 1905 law that created the AOC (Appellations d’Origine Contrôlées).
The EU has also extended the French principle to other European Union countries, and every country has its appellation system.

The vineyard also has pumps, a de-stemma er, a pneumatic press, and temperature control. And the annual yield is about 400,000 bottles or 3000hl.
