France is not like Italy, where vines grow in every region. But France is not far behind. In fact, there are more vineyards in France than in Italy.
France has 794 000 hectares of vineyards, a bit more than Italy’s 708 000 ha. And in virtually all other parts of France than the north-west, vineyards are abundant, from Champagne in the very north, to Languedoc-Roussillon on the border to Spain, from the Loire on the Atlantic coast in the west, to Provence in the east, bordering Italy.
Join us on this whirlwind tour of all major wine regions of France.
