  1. The Big Names of Hunter Valley
Hunter Valley in Australia is probably the best wine destination that there is on the planet. It has some of the biggest names in Shiraz, including McGuigan, Stonehurst, and McWilliams, and its proximity to Sydney is a vantage point for tourists and wine enthusiasts. The place is that it lies inside Australia, and so, it can get hot quickly. But the conditions make it the perfect choice for wine, and those who love it won’t be let down. 2. The Vineyards of Napa and Sonoma Valleys: A Place for Novices While the Hunter Valley in Australia can be an excellent destination for wine-lovers, wait till you hear what the Napa Valley in California has got in store for you. You can expect no less than exotic wine tours in a place that harbors Hollywood and Disneyland, where you will get to witness 400 different types of wineries. There is also another 200-odd winery that lies close to the Napa Valley, in the surrounding Sonoma Valley. It is a treat for those who want to know everything they can about the production of wine. The Sonoma Valley is one of those places on the earth that consists of big players in the wine industry, such as Inglenook, Mondavi, Domaine Chandon, and Clos du Val. The location is best known to produce some exquisite Chardonnay and Zinfandel along with the best Champagne that you can get. 3. Get to Taste the Sumptuous Red Wine of Bordeaux If you are looking for a place that offers exquisite Remy Martin XO and delicious red wine, this wine destination is just for you.

4. Alentejo, Portugal: The Biggest Name When It Comes to Vine With eight registered and denominated winery regions, Alentejo in Portugal has over 250 producers of wine and is one of the most formidable wine-growing areas of the place. The three main types of soil found in Alentejo are the granitic, calciferous, and the Mediterranean Red and all the three are the best when it comes to producing wine. The city once had three different wine routes, merged into one, resulting in the existing soil conditions. Borba is another place in Portugal that has small inns which the locals call ‘Tasca.’ And November is one of the best times of the year to visit the place and witness some wineries at work and get to try their samples and local delicacies.
