France is cloaked with spectacular Vino con Vista sipping and sojourning opportunities from Champagne to Bordeaux. Here’s a Wine Spectator map of all the wine regions in France:

http://assets.winespectator.com/wso/Maps/Francemap.pdf

The undisputed pinnacle of the French premium wine scene is Bordeaux with 60 appellations and about 10,000 wine estates/chateaux. The blending of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc grapes produces elegant wine. The area produces 5 premier cru (first growth) red wines:

The first growths are:

To learn more about Crus Classes visit http://www.crus-classes.com/

The Bordeaux Tourism Office provides the following information about visiting vineyards in distinct districts of Bordeaux:

• “The Médoc has outstanding vineyard soil, and includes prestigious great growths as well as numerous crus bourgeois. Estates often have impressive châteaux, whose architecture is, on occasion, remarkably unusual.

• The Blaye and Bourg regions have beautiful vine-covered slopes overlooking the Gironde estuary and villages with houses of golden-colored stone, Romanesque churches, famous archaeological sites, and typical small ports.

• Located on the right bank of the Dordogne, the medieval town of Saint-Emilion is not only famous for its fine wines, but also for its many historic monuments, and was listed in 1999 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

• The Entre Deux Mers, the largest winegrowing region in Bordeaux, owes its name to the two rivers that mark its borders, the Garonne and the Dordogne. The Entre Deux Mers also features numerous historic landmarks including medieval bastides (fortified villages) and abbeys.

• The Graves region stretches from Bordeaux to Langon, along the west bank of the Garonne, as far south as the immense Landes pin forest.

In the city of Bordeaux, the Chartrons district features majestic residences, cellars, and warehouses that bear witness to a time when this part of town was the historic heart of the wine trade.”
