  • When people think wine, Africa usually isn’t high on the list, but…
    • South Africa has a history of wine dating back 3+ centuries, with production centered around Cape Town.
    • You may be surprised to see Namibia on this list, but there are some small wineries that produce small batches of wine, making it a unique and interesting place for tastings.
    • Despite being a Muslim country, Tunisia has a pretty good wine scene as historically it has been produced by French oenogologists.  Because of strict importation laws, the majority of the wine served in Tunisia is locally produced.
  • Italy is one of the world’s most popular destinations for wine enthusiasts, and you can even jump into wine tastings on a budget.
  • When checking out wine regions in France, you may notice that most of the country is a wine region.  A wine trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to France.
  • Italy and France always pop up on wine tasting trips in Europe, but did you know that Portugal has been in the wine business since the Roman Empire was around?  There is a large variety of native wines as the soil and climate differ around the country.  Add this little known wine region to your trip and drink your way around Portugal!
