11th July 2018
Are you a wine lover? Do you want to go to one of the best five sparkling wine regions in Europe? No problem; there are plenty of wine regions to choose from. And the wines there are divine. In fact, wine from these regions is sold all around the world. And in most cases, the price isn’t small. This means that you will be able to try all the various sparkling wine at very affordable prices if you go directly to the source. In most of these places, locals are experts at making all sorts of wines from their vineyards. And they are usually very happy to sell them to you for a decent price. I visited one of these regions myself while I was looking for a way to get paid to proofread. Yes, I really did travel abroad to find a better job.
The French are some of the most experienced wine connoisseurs in the world. There people really love wine and they have very strict rules and regulations for their winemaking industry. Only the best wine gets to be produced in these areas and the quality is very strictly kept under control.
The first, and perhaps the most popular wine region in France, is Champagne, of course. This is one of the most famous Wine regions in the world. The region is so important that UNESCO awarded it a World Heritage site title recently. Of course, tourists are flocking to Champagne, so make sure you have a place to stay before you book a flight. Many people are visiting this French region not because they are wine-lovers, but because of the region’s beauty. The hillsides full of vineyards are beautiful to watch during a sunset or early in the morning.
Another renowned wine region in France is Bordeaux. You have surely heard about Bordeaux wine. This is where it was first made. In fact, Bordeaux is considered by many the wine capital of the world. In addition to all the wine tasting, the region is also renowned for its medieval culture, historical importance, and even tasty food. Most tourists consider that one needs at least 10 days in this region to fully experience everything it has to offer. In addition to sparkling wines, you can taste the incredible sweet white wine being produced in Medoc, Sauternes, Graves or Pomerol.
Italy is well known for its wines, especially the growing trend of Prosecco. It may not be as renowned as France, but you can still find interesting and unique wines in Italy. The Prosecco region is a stunning area to visit from a tourism point of view with its amazing scenery and love of food which must be paired with an Italian sparkling! There is more to Italy than Prosecco, also give Franciacorta and Trento a try.
Cava covers many geographic areas in Spain, but the majority are made around the town of Sant Sadurni d’Anoia in the Catalan vineyards which is only about 30 minutes from Barcelona. One good thing about Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, if you come as a tourist, is the fact that you can’t walk very far before you come across a Cava house, big ones or small!
Did you know that Portugal is renowned for its wines? And yes, they produce sparkling wines as well. The Douro Valley in Portugal has been designated by UNESCO a World Heritage site. The vineyards there are known for the exquisite Port wine. Not only is the wine excellent, the area is breathtaking as well with its steep hills and terraced vineyards. And yes, there is also a river.
Before I started working for Myhomeworkdone, an elite academic writing service, I had the chance to visit Champagne. Believe me, the experience is unforgettable. And the wine was some of the best I have ever tasted. The French really know how to make sparkling wine!
