There’s a whole host of dreamy destinations for wine lovers where you can expect to enjoy some of the finest wines and eat food so delicious you’ll never want to leave. Take a look:
- Slovenia- It is one of the more underrated and a lesser known country producing the finest wines of the world. However, the vast majority of the perfectly fermenting juice, usually grape juice is not exportable. Instead, they consume the vast majority of it themselves! Slovenia remains something of a hidden gem of the global wine industry. With three main wine-producing regions – Drava, Lower Sava, and Littoral, you can pick and choose where you take a tour and expect delicious, home-cooked food as well. The city of Maribor is where you’ll find the ancient vine, which only produces around 100 bottles each year. When you need to walk off the wine, head for Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled for fresh air and breathtaking views.
- Stellenbosch, South Africa- Stellenbosch’s wine-producing heritage dates back more than 335 years. No wonder you can have the fabulous glass of vino on your Wine Travel Destination. The destination also speaks of legacy and many legendary tales which makes the entire exploration experience of life. Encompassing over 140 vineyards, you can visit Stellenbosch on a day trip from Cape Town. However to truly enjoy the joys of the area, stay a night or two and enjoy one of the many wine experiences on offer, such as the blending class at Middelvlei Wine Estate. There’s even ‘wine’ blending for children using grape juice instead of the real deal. Don’t let your senses get befooled over the fact that Stellenbosch is famous for wines alone. Equally irresistible are the food on offer. The greatest combo is a chocolate wine pairing.
- Santorini, Greece- Known for those picture-perfect white-washed villas against beautiful blue seas, Santorini offers yet more to the wine-loving traveler. Learn how to use the fresh island ingredients to create beautiful Greek food at the acclaimed Selene Restaurant, in the village of Pyrgos. And top it off with delicious wine with the most indigenous and unique method. The wine is grown in the volcanic soil and the special climate of Santorini. Wine tours at one of the many vineyards are plentiful, but the Art Space – a contemporary art gallery in a winery dating back to 1861, is particularly special as it is located eight meters underground.
