Where is the World’s Best Wine Region?
Travel to the world’s wine regions yields rich experiences. Let us know where you think the world’s best wine region is.
The allure of the world’s wine regions merely begins with excellent wine. Romance, intrigue, scenery, conviviality and culture are just a few of the less tangible yet very real souvenirs wine lovers may bring home with their favourite bottle. Where is the world’s best region for wine and travel?
Maybe you have a number of favourite regions. But when forced to choose, you pick Sonoma because the wines are every bit as good as those in Napa, but the atmosphere is more relaxed and friendly. Your picnic in the Healdsburg town square is set to jazz music, and your go-to red may be from Sonoma’s Seghesio, an underrated Zinfandel producer. Another great find is Imagery, which boasts beautiful gardens and great wines with an emphasis on art for their labels. The value of your wine collection just went up.
A New Secret Weapon
Perhaps you discover that you prefer Prosecco over Champagne during a visit to the beautiful Veneto region of Italy. When you return home you choose wines from this region—Bardolino, Valpolicella, Amarone and Soave in addition to the sparkling Prosecco—and no matter the price point, you’re never let down. Maybe you know you’re not exactly a wine expert, but your guests won’t. How’s that for a smooth finish?
