France produces more fine wines than any other country in the world. France is blessed with numerous wine producing regions from which some of the finest wines in the world are bottled. Visitors who choose France for their wine tasting trip find the primary challenge is deciding on what to "exclude" from their vacation abroad.
France has more than 2 million acres of planted grapevines, and produces more fine wines than any other country in the world. The Greeks first introduced wine to the people of this fertile land. Travelers will have an opportunity to visit many UNESCO World Heritage Sites that were constructed during the early influence of the Greeks. France has been producing wine since 600 BC and to date, France still has impressive global influence.
Officially, French can be divided into three wine regions based upon climate and location. The northern regions of Champagne, Alsace and Burgundy tend to be on the cooler side, growing grapes with higher acidity levels such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These are also the main grapes for the creation of champagne. The southern French wine from the Rhone, has a warmer Mediterranean climate that produce nice, ripe wines that are bold and luscious. Finally, the Atlantic coast, which includes Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, experience the maritime weather, which boasts the perfect conditions for producing some of the most expensive and well-known wines in the world.
