The big gap in The Wine Enthusiast’s Best Wine Travel!
A few days back I wrote about The Wine Enthusiast’s selection of the The World’s Top Ten Wine Travel Destinations.
WineToursimInFrance.com picked up on the same story and mad an interesting remark.
There is a big “what’s missing?” on that list!
Actually, it is not that hard to spot.
Here is their top the wine tour list. What, in your view, is missing?
Take a look and then continue below the picture here!
Where is France?
Not a single French wine region on The Wine Enthusiast’s list. Quite remarkable.
Do we agree?
Of course not!
France is one of the world’s premier wine tour destinations. It is not just that we happen to be based in France and do a lot of our business here in France. It really is a great country to travel in and to go wine touring in.
Great wine regions. Great food. Absolutely top class wines. But also “new discoveries” for those who are more adventurous and want to discover new things.
OK, they have a language that is not always easy to grasp. But then you can simply travel with someone who can handle that “issue” for you. Like us at BKWine!
WineToursimInFrance.com also did a quick look-back to last year’s top list from the Wine Enthusiast. It was not quite as bad then. France was on the list. With one single wine region….
Here is The Wine Enthusiasts Top Wine Tour Destinations for 2012:
- Napa Valley, California
- Santa Barbara, California
- Mosel Valley, Germany
- Priorat, Spain
- Tokaj, Hungary
- Veneto (Valpolicella, Soave), Italy
- Central Otago, New Zeeland
- Colchagua Valley, Chile
Please France! You have to market your wine regions better!
We’re doing our best but it would be better with a bit of help from you.
What do you think? Shouldn’t some French wine regions be on the list? If so, which one(s)? Or was it something else that you saw was missing?
