This is the home of many wineries in the upper Rhone Valley. The wine here is amazing, the people are wonderful, the food is delicious, and the views are breathtaking – it seems nothing more is needed for happiness and is not needed.
2. Mosel. Germany
This German region should be at the very top of your list not only because of the world-famous Riesling grape variety but also because of its picturesque villages located on the hills along the river of the same name. If you doubt the existence of God and the natural talents of combining the incongruous, be sure to go to Mosel, and your perception will change.
Wine has been produced here since biblical times, however, since then it has been famous for its quality. Given the traditions of the past, young winemakers are trying to introduce new technologies, and it seems that this is in demand. Small boutiques are scattered almost everywhere, but their main cluster is located in the Golan Heights and Judean hills.
4. Etna, Sicily
Recently, Sicily began to seriously compete with Tuscany for the title of the most wine region in Italy. Excellent quality wine complements the stunning views that open with Etna. The bonus is also food and culture.
5. Rhone Valley, France
The Rhone Valley, with its 13 wine routes, from Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône in the south to Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage Syrah in the north, is a must for all wine lovers. Gorgeous wineries, delicious cuisine and the opportunity to experience two climates at once (the northern part of the region belongs to the continental climate and the southern to the Mediterranean) – this seems to make this direction so attractive.
6. Piedmont, Italy
Piedmont is a great wine, breathtaking landscapes, picturesque wineries, and medieval cities. The most famous wines – Barolo and Barbaresco – will go even better with local food.
Must visit – le Langhe, Monferrato, and Canavese.
7. Prince Edward Island, Ontario
Prince Edward Island, a newcomer to the wine market, but this is more of an advantage than a disadvantage. Its fertile soil and cool climate in the northern part of Lake Ontario are ideal conditions for growing varieties such as pin noir and chardonnay.
8. Santorini, Greece
In addition to the crystal water and the famous blue and white houses, there is another reason to come to this Mediterranean island – and this is wine. Volcanic soils enrich the earth with minerals, which gives a new sound to everything that this soil produces.
Georgia is a former Soviet republic, one of the oldest wine regions in the world, the popularity of which has been steadily increasing in recent years. The traditional Georgian method is the use of queries – special clay vessels in which wine is stored. Today, this method is borrowed by many winemakers around the world.
Nature, history, culture, cuisine, wine, and people – all this makes Georgia one of the strongest players in this market.
