Best Countries for Wine Drinkers


If you are an avid wine enthusiast, or just someone who deems wine a necessary element of dinner, these are the best countries to move to.

France

French wine is considered the most prestigious in the world, and people will often compare wines against the top notches of French varieties. The French also consume more wine than populations of any other country. They originated Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah. Its world-renowned wine regions are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, Loire and Alsace. French people take their wine very seriously.

Italy

Italy is comparable to France, as it is part of daily life, and these countries produce the most wine in the world. Its most famous regions are Piedmont, Tuscany and Tre Venezi, but grapes are grown in all regions. It is famous for the region of Chianti (whose wine is appropriately named Chianti), a romantic wine country with rolling hills and castles.

Spain

Spain has the most area set aside for wine grape cultivation than anywhere else. However, its wine is not world famous, and is often dismissed by the French and Italian.

United States

Northern California has famous wine country, particularly in Napa and Sonoma counties. Oregon is also famous for its Pinot Noir. It has the right climate, as the grapes must chill at night and there is plenty of rain to hydrate them. New York produces a lot of wine in the Finger Lakes region, but it is usually not that great.

Australia

Australia is known for producing many sweet desert wines. They produce a variety of different wines, like spicy Shiraz, Pinot Noir, that mostly comes from outside Sydney, and sparkling wines, from the Yarra Valley.

Hungary

If you’re headed to Eastern Europe, Hungary is the way to go! They have a lesser-known wine country, and original grapes like Furmint and Juhfark. You can buy delicious red wines at supermarkets for the equivalent of a dollar.

Chile

Chilean wines have a colonial history, as grapes were planted by Spanish people in the 1500s. Its red wines are more desired than its whites. The volcanic ash that settles in Chilean soil provides an appropriate chemical balance for great wine production. Their wines are usually relatively inexpensive, and are growing in international popularity.

South Africa

Wine from South Africa dates back to when the Dutch initially planted grapes during their colonial period, in 1650. It wasn’t until recently that South Africa began to export red and white wines internationally. Its main wine country is northeast of Capetown, which is one of the biggest in the world. They are more known for their white wines, such as Chenin Blanc.

Argentina

Argentina has the highest wine production in South America. Italian grapes were initially planted in Argentinian soil in the 1500s. They have some unique grapes, such as Pedro Giminez, Moscatel and Torrentes.
