Oenotourisme France - Partez à la découverte de 5 villes à visiter quand on aime le vin ! - Les Grappes

Discover 5 cities to visit when you love wine!

Every wine lover has already imagined taking a trip around the world of vineyards. As we are nice, we have listed 5 cities, starting points of wine routes that are as exotic as possible. If you don't want to miss anything, follow the guide!

Cape Town, Mediterranean in the south of Africa:

Cape Town is a city in South Africa where you learn how to make wine at the university. In the region, there are many estates with grape varieties of French origin. Start (or end) of the wine route, Cape Town is a very nice creative city to discover, whether you are a wine lover or not.

Valparaiso, slopes with colorful houses:

A "Valley of Paradise" facing the ocean and with a gigantic port, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dwellings of all colours are built on the heights, while at the bottom are scattered houses mainly made of sheet metal: rather nice to visit!

Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes:

A city that promises you a breathtaking view of the Andes Cordillera when you get up in the morning, you know many of them? Nice to do: rent a bike, take a ride through the vineyards for a whole day and stop from bodega to bodega to discover their Malbec!

San Francisco, a bit of Europe in the United States :

San Francisco, the most European of American cities, only 45 minutes south of the Napa Valley. If you feel like taking a trip to the California vineyards, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns supreme, this is the ideal starting point.

Bordeaux, between class and grands crus :

A wine capital that is not presented, everyone (or almost everyone) knows Bordeaux. Surrounded by vineyards and beautiful appellations, Bordeaux is the ideal place when you love wine! The event not to be missed is the Fête du Vin which takes place every two years in June. Four days of tasting of the best vintages of the region and of France on the quays, we can't wait for 2016!
