Best Wine Holiday writers have travelled to many
of the world's best wine regions as well as the world's best beaches.
While France has always been regarded as the traditional home of wine, other
wine regions of the world have flourished in wine-making techniques.
France is a land of beauty and contrasts, in geography and also
in wine making. The jewel in the crown of France’s illustrious wine
history is the grand Champagne region east of Paris. The famous
champagne houses including Dom Perignon and Moet et Chandon
are all here.
Further south, Burgundy
Bordeaux differ greatly -
has thousands of small growers while Bordeaux
has many grand estates.
Valley in the US produces quality red wines and white wines, thanks
to the tireless efforts of Robert Mondavi, who died recently aged 94.
Mondavi was inspired by France and joined
with Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Bordeaux's famous
Château Mouton-Rothschild in 1979 to create Opus One in the
Napa Valley. A flood of international investment followed.
Australia's Barossa Valley produces some of the world's
best red wines thanks to German settlers, closely pursued by
the Margaret River region with its powerful reds.
New Zealand white wines, and particularly sauvignon blancs, are
now world leaders as well.
