Visiting a winery has always been a really enjoyable experience. Can you not only enjoy your time in nature and see the vines grow outdoors, but also try some delicious local wines? It sounds like a dream to us. Many vineyards also have delicious food that is in perfect harmony with the wines they produce. Here are some of the best wineries you can visit all over the world.
Lavaux Vineyards, Switzerland
The Lavaux vineyard is directly above Lake Geneva and looks like a painting. It is natural that it is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lavaux has 830 hectares of vines and can be reached by hiking, ferry or car.
Château Monterena, California
Château Monterena is like a fairy tale. Doesn’t that Gothic castle look like it was built for a fairy princess? None of them are here, but there are plenty of incredible wines. In 1976, the Judgment of Paris’s Blind Tasting Contest selected the wines of Chatea Monterena, which were superior to French wines, and became one of California’s most famous wineries. There are also private lands and lakes.
Marquez de Riscal, Spain
Marques de Riscal is the best possible method and is not traditional. The hotel and function center were designed by architect Frank O. Gary, who called the building the City of Wine. This is in stark contrast to the basement, which dates back to the 19th century. The avant-garde building of the 21st century also has a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, France
This beautiful location is a famous French winery, 25 miles northwest of Bordeaux. France is one of the best places in the world in terms of wine, and Chateau Ducru is a perfect example of this excellence. Located next to the mouth of the Girond, a castle where winery owners still live, is a great example of Grand Cru grade winemaking.
Dominio del Plata, Argentina
Argentine wines are famous all over the world and Dominio del Plata is really one of the best wines. This country is the fifth largest wine producing country in the world. Its most famous wine is Malbec, a variety brought from Bordeaux to Argentina in the 19th century.
