French Wine Regions

French Wine Regions
EUROPEAN WINE REGIONS

Though Germany is known for its beer, its wine-producing regions also boast some of the most amazing scenery, finest food, and best-touted tourist attractions, making it the perfect destination for any wine lover. Germany offers 13 official wine regions, the same number as in France. The regions are located mostly in the southern part of Germany and along the Rivers Rhine, Mosel, and Ahr. Soil as well as climate favor the ripening of the grapes, white as well as red, and give German wines their much-coveted flavor and quality.

Italy offers the perfect combination of food, wine and people that can’t be beat, and it’s a must for any lover of wine and culture. The country boasts thousands of vineyards found in many of its regions which produce hundreds of famous varieties of wine, from the bold reds in the hills of Tuscany to crisp sparkling wines in the northern lakes region, and one-of-a-kind varietals at rustic island wineries in Sicily.

Wine is closely related to Greek culture and religion with a much more diverse climate and terrain than most people realize. Out of the 700 wineries in Greece, only a few can produce enough to export, so many excellent wines come from small-producers and go undiscovered outside of Greece. The country is a bit of a mystery to many wine drinkers, who may be limited by their knowledge of the region, grape varieties, or simply the pronunciation. However, one visit to Greece, sipping dry white wine of Santorini Island, sampling rosé on a Peloponnese road trip, indulging in sparkling wines in the mountainous north, or discovering the reds of Crete: there is something for every taste.

Cyprus may not be well known internationally when it comes to wine, but don’t let that fool you. The people of Cyprus have been making wine for nearly 4,000 years and legend has it that they were taught by none other than Dinoysus, the God of wine himself. Given that winemaking goes back for centuries here and rumors that Cypriots were among the first winemakers in the world, it can easily be said that they are pretty good at their craft.

Spain was the third-largest producer of wine in the world in 2017 following Italy and France. The vineyards of Spain cover the largest land area at a sprawling 2.4 million acres! That is 20% larger than the California Wine Estates! Wine has been cultivated in Spain since at least 1,100 BC when it was established by the Phoenicians in the Cadiz area. The country has 138 official wine designations (as of 2020) with each region being incredibly diverse along with an extremely varied climate leading to the production of everything from zesty Albarino to inky, black Monastrell, collectible treasures, delicate whites, and opulent reds.
