Wine Tasting in France


France has some of the most beautiful wine producing regions in the world, and some of the best tasting wines.



Among the most famous wine regions in France are: Bordeaux, known for some of the world's most expensive wines like Chateaux Latour, Margaux, and Lafite; Burgundy and the Rhone Valley with excellent red and white wines; Alsace, with its beautiful and exciting wine route; and Champagne, the only place in the world where one can produce sparkling white wine called champagne.

There are many other places in France where wine is produced, for instance in the region of LanguedocProvence and even on Corsica. In most of the wine regions there are plenty of opportunities for free wine tasting and to buy the local wines. 

Wine tasting
 is often a multi-day affair, not only does it take time to get from one wine district to another, but once in a district there are so many places to visit and wines to taste, that you would want to spend more than a day in each district.

It is not difficult to find a place to stay, there are many small villages and even big cities in most of the districts where you can find accommodation at all price levels. And since wine goes with food there are also many excellent restaurants available.

If you want to do an excursion to wine regions from Paris you should be aware that the distances can be great. Champagne is the closest region to Paris located some 200 km northeast of Paris. Burgundy is further away to the southeast while Bordeaux is around 500 km southwest of Paris.
