Burgundy is a favorite for pies at Wilson's Orchard in Iowa City. I worked in the bakery last year and people who know of Burgundy's best kept secret of fantastic tasting pies place orders for dozens to keep in their freezer and serve year-round. Burgundy is sweet-tart and won't break down completely when baking leaving small tasty surprises in your mouth. Yum!
