Wine Countries Across the World

Aegean Islands, Greece
The Aegean Islands in Greece are a one stop destination to a variety of vineyards of white and red grapes. The island of Santorini is a large grape farm, with about 1,200 hectares under wine. The perfect time to enjoy this beautiful vineyard is during the August grape harvest. The famous wine of the area comes from the Assyritko grape, which produces an acidic, crisp, and delightful wine. Other varieties include Voudomato and Mavrotragano, an earthy wine, and Aidani, a floral white win.

Valle de Guadalupe/Baja California, Mexico
Even though Mexico seems like the last wine country destination, in the last decades the quality of the wineries have improved significantly. Along Route 3 in the Guadalupe Valley, there is the Ruta del Vino (wine route). Baja wine country is perfect to visit all year long. Some of the perfect wine-tasting locations are Alximia and the Hacienda La Lomita. The wines tend to be high in alcohol with a black-fruit flavor. The saltiness of the wines comes from the water used for irrigation. Pick wins such Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec for an immersive experience.

Texas Hill Country, USA
Texas Hill Country is the fifth wine-producing state in the United States. Their grapes are bursting with flavor and are greatly focused on the red wines. The area is a reminiscence of the Old West. The best place to taste the Texan wine is at places like Lewis Wines, a 27-year old company, and Flat Creek Estate, which is 20 acre vineyard. Be sure to try the their famous red wines such as the 2011 Tempranillo and the Petite Sirah.

Mendoza, Argentina
The Mendoza Province is perhaps one of the most important wine locations, with 2/3 of the country’s wine being produced there. Malbec is the most prominent wine of the area, but Criolla Grande and Cereza are pink-skinned grapes that have been the backbone of the Mendoza Province. Visit Atamisque or Bodegas Salentein to taste some of the best wines in the area.

Sonoma, USA
Sonoma is one of California’s largest producers of wine, even exceeding Napa Valley. Traced back to 1812, Sonoma County was the premier location of vineyards. By the 1920s, there were 256 wineries established. The soil is so diverse that Sonoma is home to a variety of grapes, included Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Some places to try wine are Arista and the Dry Creek Vineyard.

Baden, Germany
Baden is located in southwestern Germany and has around 39,300 acres under vine as of 2008. Pinot variety grapes account for 55% of the vineyards in Baden. Gutedel is also grown here, making it the only place in Germany that grows them. Taste wine at Schloss Staufenberg and at Franz Keller’s.
