This chapter contributes to the debate on Terroir in Burgundy by building a sociological and anthropological argument in relation to the notion of 'climats' (an ill-defined term but one that is embodied in imagined notions of an enduring and thus authenticated social configuration) defined in the context of UNESCO recognition of the climats of Burgundy for world heritage status. The concept of resilience - defined as the ways that Burgundian communities have coped with the location of the vineyards and thus the difficult nature of growing wine at its climatic limits - is at the core of this chapter.
