Vin Doux! The Top 10 Best Wine Destinations For 2022

best-travel-destinations-wine-lovers-2021

To travel is to experience other people’s cultures, soak in their lifestyle, and leave with a piece of them. For wine lovers, travel isn’t complete without savoring the exquisite wine various destinations have to offer and allowing them to burst through your yearning taste buds. Besides, life’s too short to be stuck in a routine of familiarity and predictability. A glass in hand sometimes equals a hearty laugh and amiable demeanor.

Wine lovers are a unique breed. While the regular traveler decides to visit a destination because of tourist attractions, culture, and maybe food, the wine lover makes this decision based on the wine. From sparkling Rieslings to rich Pinot Noirs, it is no surprise that wine lovers troop to these destinations to savor the copiousness of vino (as the Italians fondly call wine).

Check out the 10 best destinations for wine lovers in 2022…

Forget the breathtaking volcanic landscape, pine forests, and numerous hiking routes. When you’re in Tenerife, Spain, the wine should top your bucket list. What makes this region’s offering extra special is that the wines are made using indigenous varieties, including Listán Blanco and Listán Negro, as well as Baboso Negro — which is vinified into incredible reds. Although many have stated that the award for best should go to the ancient Listán Prieto, we’ll leave that decision to you when you arrive at the destination.

#2. Piedmont, Virginia, USA

The scent of freshly squeezed grapes ready to be blended into the perfect wine is enough to send you to wine heaven.

Maybe spending Christmas in Piedmont, Italy would be a great holiday idea after all. Most Italian wine regions come alive from October to the end of the year with lots of food fairs and Vino Novello (new wine), and Piedmont itself is home to some excellent wines. In 2021, the official Città del Vino (City of Wine) was the village of Barolo in Piedmont according to Città del Vino National Association. So you might want to make a stop at this village.
