Best Wine Holiday writers have travelled to many of the world's best wine regions as well as the world's best beaches.

While France has always been regarded as the traditional home of wine, other wine regions of the world have flourished in wine-making techniques.

France is a land of beauty and contrasts, in geography and also in wine making.  The jewel in the crown of  France’s illustrious wine history is the grand Champagne region east of Paris.  The famous champagne houses including Dom Perignon and Moet et Chandon are all here.

Further south, Burgundy and Bordeaux differ greatly - Burgundy has thousands of small growers while Bordeaux has many grand estates.

The Napa Valley in the US produces quality red wines and white wines, thanks to the tireless efforts of Robert Mondavi, who died recently aged 94.

Mondavi was inspired by France and joined with Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Bordeaux's famous Château Mouton-Rothschild in 1979 to create Opus One in the Napa Valley. A flood of international investment followed.

Australia's Barossa Valley produces some of the world's best red wines thanks to German settlers, closely pursued by the Margaret River Wine region with its powerful reds.

New Zealand white wines, and particularly sauvignon blancs, are now world leaders as well.

We hope you enjoy the experiences here in our wine travel magazine as much as you enjoy wine.

Our latest wine experience is a journey to the alluring, intoxicating Champagne region of France, including the luxurious Chateau les Crayeres.  We hope you enjoy it.
