The Mâconnais vineyard is in Burgundy, in the Saône et Loire department. It spans over 35 km in length and 10 km in width, and you will mainly find Chardonnay there (80% of the entire production, actually). The soil of the vineyard is a mix of marlstone, clay and limestone. There is even some silica stone, near the village of Fuissé.
The most famous dry white wines from the Mâconnais are what you call village appellations: Pouilly-Fuissé, Pouilly-Vinzelles, Pouilly-Loché, Viré-Clessé and Saint-Véran. There are also many region appellations, like Bourgogne Aligoté, Bourgogne Passe-Tout-Grains, Mâcon-Villages and many others.
