It’s no secret that most travelers enjoy a glass of fine wine (or two, or three) from time to time.
With travel bringing together so many different cultures, a shared affinitiy for social lubricant seems only natural.
With that in mind, AskMen.com sought to combine a love of two common passions, compiling a list of the 10 Best Wine Destinations in the world.
While cities and towns in France and Italy rightfully snatched up most of the spaces on the list, surprise appearances from Germany, Australia, and the United States showed that the rest of the world just might be catching up when it comes to the art of wine-making.
Here’s the full list:
1. Burgundy, France
2. Champagne, France
3. Tuscany, Italy
4. Bordeaux, France
5. Mosel, Germany
6. Napa Valley, California
7. Piedmont, Italy
8. Ribera del Duero, Spain
9. Barossa Valley, Australia
10. California’s Central Coast and the South of France
