The municipal appellation named after the town of the same name with 226 hectares of vineyards is located in the Côte de Beaune area on the Burgundian Cote d'Or between the communities Pommard and Meursault, Almost exclusively red wines from Pinot Noir with Pinot Gris and Pinot Liébault are produced, which are among the best Burgundies. Already that Cistercian owned vineyards here in the 14th century and with the dukes of Burgundy who had a castle here at the time were very popular. Claude conducts his famous book on Burgundy wines Arnoux (1695-1770) with a hymn of praise written in Latin for the wines of Volnay, in which he describes them as "partridge-colored" and as the best wines of the Côte de Beaune. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the wine from this community was one of the most popular of the Bourbons and also of the entire aristocracy. There are no grands crus. The most important of the over 30 Premiers Crus with 114 hectares of vineyards are Bousse d'Or, Caillerets, Champans, Chênes, Ducs, En l'Ormeau, Fremiets, Santenots, Waist Pieds and Pousse d'Or.
