Today, on Redhead Mom, I am sharing a partnered guest post about 5 Must-Visit Destinations for Wine Connoisseurs.
This pandemic has already taken away our leisure and personal time as most of us fail to draw a line between work and life. This still might be acceptable for a few but what if you were asked, have you lost your palate taste? None other than but wine-lovers are going to win this survey.
A recent study shows that the Global Wine Market is to reach $434.6 billion by 2027. Amid the pandemic itself, the global market for wine is to break the estimated record and reach a revised size of US $434 billion.
Who understands the importance of having a good palate taste than a wine connoisseur? Missing those lavish swirl and sniff and getting lost in it? Worry not! Here we are with few suggestions on the must-visit destinations for all the wine connoisseurs out there who want to reacquire their lost aroma and taste.
1 – Croatia
Known for its breath-taking scenery dotted with vineyards and producing premium quality white wines, Croatia, is considered a significant wine-producing nation even though it doesn’t excel in the export market. Imagine the reputation of the country’s wine.
Famously said, “You’ve most likely already had a wine that originated in Croatia, you just don’t know it!”. Have you? If you haven’t yet then do not even call yourself a wine expert. It is a common view now in Croatia watching wine connoisseurs sailing along the coasts and enjoying Croatian wine along with the fascinating scenery on earth.
2 – The Yarra Valley, Australia
Commercial wine-making in Australia is about two hundred years old, credits to the nineteenth century new settlers who established vineyards in many parts of Australia especially Victoria. It takes less than an hour-drive East of Melbourne and you reach the most popular destination for wine connoisseurs, the Yarra Valley.
Offering you delicious food, fascinating scenery, and adventures, this place becomes one of the most popular regions for tourists in Victoria. The high-quality sparkling wine, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the most sought-after wines of this region.

You talked about wine and do not expect Italian wine to take a rank? According to a survey, Italy is the world’s leading producer of wine in 2019. While if you are a wine lover, you must be familiar with Tuscany, but little were you aware of the “magical wine destination” and “a thin peninsula packed tight with stunning beauty and surrounded by some of the bluest waters in Europe”, as Puglia is described by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Known for keeping Italy’s best secrets, Puglia has something for everyone. Starting from red wine including Uva di Troia, Aglianico, and Bombino Nero to white wine including Bombino Bianco. They also serve you with a combination of cheese in freshly made pasta.
4 – France
Ever thought of a celebration without Champagne? Similarly, a true wine connoisseur cannot forget Chablis when thinking of white wine. All of your major favorite excellent red wines including Burgundy, Bordeaux, Cotes du Rhone, and Beaujolais originate from France.
French wine has just so much to offer to you, just pick a spot and enjoy their viticulture. For wine connoisseurs, you have reached heaven. France is believed to give good competition to Italy when it comes to the wine market, currently, it stands third in the production of wine.
5 – Mendoza, Argentina
Located about 700 miles west of Buenos Aires and set upon a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains, Mendoza is considered the largest wine region in Argentina and also known for its Malbec wines. The central region of this city is famous for its most traditional winemaking area where one can find Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay.
Vineyards here range from tiny little family-owned to large producers but what remains common is the commitment to quality, the old culture, and the love while preparing these wines that never fail to mesmerize you.
