  • Le Médoc, France : if it is a region in the world which is known for its wine that is the Medoc, this "middle earth" sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde estuary. At the heart of his gravelly hills overlooking the Garonne, the Grands Crus of 1855 did much to its reputation (Haut-Brion, Margaux, St. Estephe ...). A stroll along its roads dotted with castles bourgeois worth a visit to her alone.
  • Reims, France : Champagne production extends around Reims in a relatively small area. Hikes along the limestone terraces overlooking the plains of the Marne and bush trips will delight your eyes and your taste buds! Spend some days at harvest time, when the vineyards were drowned in the autumn mist is a treat.
  • The wine route of South Africa: established in the Stellenbosch region, east of Cape Town, it will offer an enchanting spectacle of vines, rocks, fruit trees and flowers. The vineyard was planted by French Huguenots who settled in the region after the Edict of Nantes. Pinotage, a local hybrid variety will delight you with its finesse and its strangeness.
  • Loire wines, France : one-time residence of the kings of France, the region has kept its local wine over the centuries which extends along the river, cutting through the green landscapes of the mild climate, from Nantes to Sancerre. The Chinon, Saumur Champigny, St-Nicolas de Bourgueil and Sancerre are the headliners. Where i live :
  • The wines of Napa Valley, California: these wines thrive in a region with gentle inclinations, north of San Francisco. The temperate climate all year round, mixed with sea mist, giving it a specific character. You can taste many different wines but Zinfandel is particularly interesting sites located along the Wine Country are beautiful.
  • The Tuscan vineyard, Italy: the most famous is the Chianti. This vineyard is in an eternal landscape of hills topped with cypress and historic villages. A cliched you love go into every season. It can also linger in the hinterland where Livornese wines are more authentic.
  • The wine route in Provence, France: it allows to discover all the richness of this wine country already spoiled by nature. Around Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, you will follow this road through a landscape of low mountains of the "Green Provence".
  • The Marlborough, New Zealand: Sauvignon grape has become the king of the country and has a worldwide reputation. The visit of the vineyard will take you through enchanting landscapes bathed in soft golden light. There are various wine aromas (green pepper, mango, gooseberry, tropical fruit ...) that explode in your mouth ...
  • The vineyards of Jerzu and Oliena, Sardinia: these give the most famous vineyards of Sardinian wines. Try Cannonau, tannic and slightly minty, which will go very well with your meat. For fans of the white Vermentino, mineral and slightly acidic, will refresh you after a hot day spent between sea and scrubland.
  • The Yarra Valley, Australia: enjoying a wet and dry climate, the vineyards near Melbourne offers noble wines as chardonnay and shiraz elegant (or syrah) spiced to delight your taste buds.

Driving through a wine road is boring though... When I was in Aussie this summer I went to a wine thingy too... and we drove like 20minutes or more through a boring wine road xD I'd rather see trees or something else every once in a while :P

Same as near Proserpine in Queensland... drove like 30minutes through "sugar roads" ... couldn't even see a tree

Australia is too big D: Some people have too much land there that they own

Anyways, I also tasted the wine there, was nice though :P And the woman that gave us a tour suddenly started talking Dutch to me eventhough I didn't even tell her I'm dutch.. I blame my accent :/

You could also go to Ontario, Canada and visit the various wineries and perhaps even try a bottle of the ice wine

Forgotten wineroads in the eastern part of Georgia, on the border with Azerbaijan. Georgia is one of the best wineproducing countries in the world, hardly anyone knows about that. More than half of Stalin's wine stash was Georgian; but I don't know if that's the best argument :P
