France is a very unique region due to its geographical location. The Alsace region, protected by the chain of the Vosges Mountains, can boast of a perfect and unique climate for growing grapes that are efficiently used to produce wine. Only in this region of France, you have a unique opportunity to try dry, very delicate and full-bodied wines at the same time.

Thus, by traveling from winery to winery, you will simultaneously have the chance to enjoy the scenery and get acquainted with the culture and history of this old region with its Gothic and Roman architecture and medieval villages.
Regarding wine types, the Alsace region is famous for its: Riesling, Gewürtzraminer and Pinot Gris. Along with them, it is worth tasting Sylvaner, Dry Muscat and Pinot Blanc.
Burgundy is one of the most famous and visited wine regions. This prestigious reputation is due to a worldwide popularity of such fine wines as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. According to the statistics of the Burgundy Wine Board, there are almost 4,000 wine producers in the said region and over 250 wine merchants. However, it is not just a big wine region. Its great history and strong values and traditions can be discovered when visiting Burgundy. Furthermore, there are many small-scale vineyards that are owned by French families. These are not accessible to the general public.
Being a considerably big region, Burgundy itself includes several wine regions stretched from north to south: Chablis, The Côte d’Or, The Côte Chalonnaise, The Maconnais, and Beaujolais.
The best time to visit Burgundy is from June to October when you can have a unique chance not only to taste the delicious wine of this region but also immerse yourself in the atmosphere and culture of this magnificent and sun-drenched part of France.
Its highly acclaimed wine makes Bordeaux one of the best-known wine regions of France. It is located in the southwest of France and only 50 km away from the Atlantic Coast.
It is an old region with a long wine history: the first people who started to cultivate and plant vineyards were the ancient Romans more than 2,000 years ago. The appropriate climate and soil conditions allow the growing of ideal grapes. Furthermore, it facilitates the production of fine and exclusive wine. In addition, the location of this region helped it become even more popular; Bordeaux has been a major port since ancient times, on this account providing a natural intersection of land, sea, and rivers. Because of that reason, the local winemakers were able to export the wine more easily.
The two predominant grapes in Bordeaux are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. However, in addition, many winemakers of the region also blend in different wines, such as Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec.
