BEDFORD, Texas, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultimate Excursions reviews 4 of the leading wine regions and what they have to offer travelers.
The Bordeaux region of France has some of the most expensive wines on the planet but there are also great wines from the area that are both affordable and delicious. The area was once an ancient lake bed. As it dried, it left behind a lime sediment which gives these wines the unique flavors that make them so desirable. The two main wines from the area are the Burgundy and the Chardonnay varieties. Unlike other wines, these wines are created from a single grape, the pinot noir and the chardonnay. This area is perhaps the most desirable place on earth for serious wine connoisseurs.
Austria doesn't produce as much wine as other countries, but what they do is highly sought after by wine lovers. Thanks to a winning Shiraz, travel to the region continues to grow. Now, there are a number of wineries located in Burgenland which produce great wine and offer tastings. Some vineyards even have vintage wines which are rare, but available for purchase for those willing to spend the money. If money isn't a concern, one winery has a Grange wine that can be tasted for a mere $850! Rest assured, there is great wine to be had for any budget.
A variety of great road trip options are available in this wine growing region which makes its way along the winding Pacific Coast. The cool climate along the ocean provides ideal conditions for California wine growers whose crops of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah are among the best in the country. There's nothing like a Sonoma or Napa Valley wine tour. Visit the quaint towns, shopping districts and restaurants which are scattered between award-winning wineries. The exceptional wineries of California can't possibly be seen and enjoyed in one trip, bringing wine lovers back year after year to discover new wineries and share memorable experiences with friends and family.
Stellenbosch, South Africa
About an hour's drive from Cape Town is South Africa's major wine region. The climate of the area is perfect for growing grapes, specifically, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and Syrah. Tourists are greeted by a majestic landscape, punctuated by massive mountains. Wine has been produced in the areas since the 17th century and wine lovers agree they've perfected the process. High-end lodging and premier wineries, make this region a must-visit destination for wine tour enthusiasts.
