One of the things that come to mind when we talk about France is its gastronomy, in which the wines play a predominant role in the collective imagination.  Let´s delve into its wines and main wine regions.

Some wines of France

Apart from the typical varieties of other regions such as the whites (blanc), rosé (rosé), and reds (rouge), in France we can find two specific types of wine:

Vin gris

This is a white wine made from red grapes, in particular the Pinot Noir variety.  The skin is separated from the pulp to isolate the color compounds coming from the skin.  This is an undisputable French wine, particularly relevant in the regions of Lorena, Midi and the Loire Valley.

Champagne

This is the most famous French wine, one of the protagonists of wine tourism routes in France.

It is a sparkling white or rosé wine produced in the region of Champagne since the seventeenth century, when it was largely consumed in the English and French Courts.

It became internationally renowned after its refinement, promoted by the Benedictine monk Dom Perignon.

The production process is based on the double fermentation system, the first in barrel and the second in the bottle; currently the Champagne mark is associated with luxury and celebration.

Activities in the wineries of the region include wine-pairings with cheeses, cultural visits or boat excursions in the lakes.

Some of the main wine tourism regions in France

Despite the fact that there are approximately 12 wine tourism regions in France, the most well-known are:

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

This is the most famous wine tourism region in the south of France, with more than 310.000 cultivated acres that are divided into multiple areas.

The wines of the Bordeaux region are whites and reds and normally they are mixed with other types of wines, which concedes extraordinary importance to the cellar master, who is the person responsible for selecting and mixing the wines.

The most outstanding activities found in the region are the wine mixing demonstrations, boat excursions, visits to castles and of course a visit to the city of Bordeaux with the option to stay in magnificent villas in the area.

Discover Burdeos

Burgundy

Situated in the West Central part of the country, with Dijon as its capital, it is one of the most well-known wine regions in the world.

In contrast to the Bordeaux wines, these are produced with a single type of grape that is generally Pinot Noir for red and Chardonnay for white.

These are wines marked by the climate in the region that prevents the grape from reaching the sugar level required, so, in some cases, it is necessary to add sugar to the grape must (chaptalization).

In this area you could take guided tours to world prestige wine cellars such as  Domaine Louis Latour, one of the most traditional and respected wine cellars in the world with its famous cuverie, one of the oldest in France that is still active.

Discover Burgundy

Beaujolais

This region is in the French departments of Saône and Loire, and Rhone.  With more than 54.000 acres of vineyards, it is one of the Meccas of wine tourism in France

It is worth noting the grape variety Gamay and the wine Beaujolais Nouveau, a name that is used for young wines in the region, fermented only for a few days, that makes up one third of total production in the area.

Among the experiences in the region the wine tourist is offered is an event for launching young wines that is celebrated on the third Thursday of November; also gastronomy or cultural routes, staying in idyllic hotels or enjoying a day of wine therapy in the area.

Cities, wineries, wines, great food, landscapes… France will give you an unforgettable and unique experience.
