A “Village wine” in English (or “Appellation Village” in French) applies to French wines and particularly to wines from the Burgundy region. It indicates a wine that qualifies for an appellation (see AOC) that corresponds with the name of the commune or village in which the wine is made.

The term “Village Wine” can be opposed to “Generic Wine”, which takes the name of the region (or a wider area). However, usually, the term “Village Wine” (or “Appellation Village” in French) is used to designate wines that do not have access to the Premier Cru or Grand Cru status (the most prestigious areas from that same village).
