In France this means visiting the beautiful vineyards of Alsace as well as say Champagne, Rhone or Burgundy. In Italy, visiting top growers in Trentino and Sicily or Tuscany. It can also mean going to Chile, looking at the origin of wine in Georgia or exploring Barolo’s cru vineyards on a vineyard walk in Piemonte.
