Recently Champagne and Burgundy elected on to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. There are actually several wine regions that have been honoured by UNESCO in the same way. Decanter magazine recently published a list. Good idea. Good reason to talk about the regions with some comments from a vinous perspective. Many of the districts are great to travel in.

The district that they mention on the list are:

What they did not include in the Decanter article were the two brand “new” wine regions on the World Heritage List. I will give them to you too. Both were elected on to the list very recently.

Generally it is not because of the wine they produce in these areas or places that they have been listed as World Heritage. Usually it has to do with historical or cultural reasons.

In the coming days I will publish a short text each day about each of these districts with little comments from a wine and travel point of view.

But perhaps we have missed something? Do you know of any more wine region that is included in the UNESCO World Heritage? Write a comment!
